ABU DHABI, October 12, 2021

Shuaa Capital, a leading asset management and investment banking platform in the region, said an open-ended fund managed by the group has registered strong growth in the last nine months generating a 35 per cent net return.
Goldilocks Investment Company, the ADGM domiciled open-ended fund launched in 2015, is being managed by Shuaa GMC, a subsidiary of Shuaa Capital. 
It has generated a net return of 158% since inception compared to the S&P Pan Arab Index’s total return of 52%, MSCI UAE Index’s total return of 16% and MSCI World Index’s total return of 89% during the same period.
In the first nine months, Goldilocks generated a 35% net return compared to the S&P Pan Arab Index total return of 32%, MSCI UAE Index total return of 36% and MSCI World Index total return of 13%. 
In addition, dividends received in H1 2021 from the Fund's underlying investments for FY 2020 were the highest since inception and demonstrated strong cash flow generation ability and strength of the Fund’s portfolio companies.
The best performers among Goldilocks' managed portfolio companies included Dana Gas (YTD 59% total return), and GFH (YTD 26% total return) and certain other equity and sukuk investments.
