KIC Sees Opportunity in Europe and Real Assets

The Korea Investment Corporation (KIC) views some European assets as attractive even during the current European sovereign debt crises. Middle East sovereign funds have shown lukewarm interest in direct European bank investment. Depending on individual liquidity needs, certain European governments and businesses are selling assets to raise cash, and sovereign wealth funds want to be in the position to take advantage of the valuation discounts. Korea’s SWF is stepping up their presence in Europe. They opened up an overseas office in London. Don’t expect any major direct investments in banks or in large part European banks from the KIC.
