Qatar Holding Sees Opportunity in European Crisis
Qatar Holding has actively been investing in direct company stakes in continental Europe for quite some time. Over this past year, Qatar Holding purchased direct stakes in numerous European ventures such as a Parisian football club and Spanish energy firm Iberdrola. Some European firms are starved for capital due to the European banking crisis which stems from stability issues with sovereign debt and higher mandatory capitalization levels for banks.
Sovereign investment entities like Qatar Holding have been an alternative source of capital for some of these European companies.
