KIPCO Asset Management Co.

In these times of accelerating change and market volatility, thorough knowledge and insight into local and global market conditions are more important than ever. This is where KAMCO comes in.

Established in 1998, KAMCO is a member of Kuwait Projects Company (Holding) group, which is among the largest holding companies in the Middle East, with a regional network of companies which enjoy leading positions in their respective fields. In June 2003, KAMCO increased its share capital from KD 15 million to KD 20 million. As of October 2003, KAMCO became listed on the Kuwait Stock Exchange.

KAMCO offers its clients comprehensive access to local and international capital markets as well as a comprehensive selection of financial services. These services are provided by a team with a proven track record which is able to develop customized solutions to meet individual client needs.

KAMCO focuses on two major activities: Asset Management and Financial Services.

Our asset management services include brokerage, tailored portfolio management, forward trading, IPOs, local and international fund management, own label and third party funds (KAMCO also offers as comprehensive investment research services). KAMCO’s strong presence in the financial marketplace has been reflected in the dynamic growth of its assets under management which now stand at nearly KD 1.3 billion.

Our financial services comprise the full range of corporate finance advisory services, including mergers and acquisitions, underwriting, private placements, strategy development and strategic planning, project and investment evaluation and consulting as well as private equity.

Headquartered in Kuwait but with affiliations that span the globe, KAMCO enjoys a leading position and competitive advantages over other investment firms in Kuwait.
