Gulf Capital sponsors Super Return conference in Munich

Gulf Capital was a Lead Sponsor of the Super Return conference held in Munich towards the end of February 2008. Gulf Capital was the only company based in the Middle East sponsoring the event and as such, single-handedly generated a lot of interest in the regional private equity industry amongst potential foreign investors.

The conference was a huge success, with senior industry representatives commenting on the current state of the industry and how the next twelve months will affect it. Key speakers and panelists discussed practical strategies for tackling the challenges currently facing the private equity industry and for moving the sector forward in turbulent market conditions.

Dr Karim El Solh, Founder & CEO of Gulf Capital, said: “The returns of participating in such an influential and distinguished conference are multifold and we are proud to have been part of it. We look forward to future Super Return conferences and are convinced that the Dubai event in October will also be a tremendous success.”

Dr. El Solh participated in two panel sessions, “The Pros and Cons of Going Public” and “Opportunities in the Middle East”, and focused on providing the delegates with relevant information on IPOs and the Middle Eastern private equity industry.
