Kuwait Finance House To Expand Residential Investments
Kuwait Finance House the country's biggest Islamic lender, is looking for real estate investments in southern China and Europe to expand its assets under management, a senior official said on Wednesday. Kuwait Finance House has $1.5 billion in assets under management (AUM), with investments primarily in key U.S. cities, Malaysia, Shenzhen in China, and the Middle East, Ali Al-Ghannam, international real estate department anager

The real estate arm, which started operations in the 1990s, has previously invested in property in the United States and Europe, including Britain, with AUM totalling $4-4.5 billion, but it liquidated those assets in 2005 and 2006.

"Back in 2005 and 2006, we could see that prices were very very expensive, and if you are in the industry you get very worried because of where they are heading," Al-Ghannam said in an interview on the sidelines of a onference in Hong Kong."We reached a decision in the middle of 2005; we decided to liquidate everything ecause of the overheated real estate prices."Now, it is back in the business of expanding.Kuwait Finance House was now focusing on expanding its real estate portfolio globally to reach around $4 billion in coming years, Al-Ghannam said, declining to provide a timeframe.

The Kuwaiti lender will be looking for opportunities in Guangzhou, after a successful residential investment in Senzhen. Both cities are in southern China.

Kuwait Finance House, which invests according to Islamic law, also put money into residential property in U.S. ities such as New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

In Malaysia, which has an active Islamic finance market, Kuwait Finance House is involved in a mixed-use project ust across from Singapore that has shopping malls, offices and residential units.The company will also invest in SingaporeHong Kong if prices are right, Al-Ghannam said."We looked at Hong Kong and Singapore, but those two are very expensive."
