DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, June 30, 2014 – Greenstone Equity Partners has joined forces with Capital Dynamics in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region to meet rising investor demand for global investment opportunities in private assets.
Greenstone Equity Partners, a Dubai based and internationally experienced fund placement firm, will bring Capital Dynamics’ Clean Energy Infrastructure and Private Equity platform to the region’s sovereign wealth funds, institutional investors and family offices. The Clean Energy Infrastructure platform includes a Sharia-compliant investment vehicle, and a Sharia-compliant investment vehicle for the Private Equity program is expected soon.
With Capital Dynamics, Greenstone Equity Partners is able to address its clients’ demand for global direct and secondary private equity and infrastructure products through a comprehensive investment platform built on the trust, experience, international knowledge and regional expertise Capital Dynamics has gained in its 20-year investment history.
With Greenstone Equity Partners, Capital Dynamics is strengthening its commitment to the Middle East. The region is particularly significant to Capital Dynamics. Executive Chairman Thomas Kubr and Managing Directors Janusz Heath and David Smith have dedicated years to building the firm’s local presence – they are now working together with Greenstone Equity Partners to expand Capital Dynamics’ brand within the region and further develop its existing relationships with GCC-based investors.
“Greenstone is a leader in the Middle East and one that shares our philosophy of providing top-quality products and unparalleled service to clients,” said Stefan Ammann, CEO of Capital Dynamics. “We understand the importance of trust and building long-term relationships within the region. We are delighted that Greenstone’s group of world-class professionals will be the face of Capital Dynamics in the GCC countries, building on the commitment we have made to the region over the past few years.”
