KIA Reaffirms UK as a Key Investment Destination
The Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA) has long been an institutional investor in the United Kingdom. In fact, the KIA has an office in London and a subsidiary called the Kuwait Investment Office which was established in 1953. Recently, the KIA reaffirmed its commitment to investing in the United Kingdom and plays a significant role in the UK financial sector.
One of the main reasons why the KIA invests in the UK is that the country has had a transparent economic policy over the financial credit crisis compared to the Eurozone. In addition, the KIA sees the UK as a relative safe haven compared to other Westernized nations.[Content protected for Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute Standard subscribers only.
