ARTICLE IMPROVEMENTS[edit]


Hello. As some of you may be aware, a number of references and some factual information could be added to this article. In the interest of transparency I am declaring that I work for The Abraaj Group. I would like to work with external editors to ensure that this Wikipedia article is accurate - please review the suggestions below and change as necessary. Thank you.

The Abraaj Group[edit]

Between the first and second paragraph, suggest to add: "The firm focuses on private equity in emerging markets outside of BRIC nations.[1] Abraaj primarily invests in consumer-facing sectors, including consumer staples, financials, energy infrastructure and healthcare businesses."

BUSINESS SEGMENT[edit]

Please add the following business segments below Private Equity. Healthcare and Energy Infrastructure, alongside Real Estate, are core sectors Abraaj invests in. Only factual information and references have been added.

Healthcare

Abraaj has invested in companies operating in the healthcare market including healthcare delivery and services, diagnostics, and pharmaceuticals.[3] Significant healthcare transactions include Integrated Diagnostic Holdings in MENA and Acibadem Healthcare in Turkey.[4] [5]

In March 2014, Abraaj announced the establishment of North Africa Hospital Holdings Group, a healthcare roll up platform, built by acquiring standalone hospitals in the region. [6] [7] Panoramic86 (talk) 08:22, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Energy Infrastructure

Significant energy infrastructure transactions include K-Electric, a vertically integrated power utility based in Pakistan.[8] In 2015, Abraaj and India’s Aditya Birla Group announced a partnership to develop 1 GW of solar power in the country. The partners announced that they would jointly bid for new solar projects tendered at national and state auctions in India.[9] [10] Panoramic86 (talk) 08:22, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES[edit]

Suggest to restructure and update. After the second paragraph, please add two sub-headers:

Abraaj Sustainability Index (ASI)

The Abraaj Sustainability Index (ASI), a proprietary tool launched in 2008 measures the sustainable development impact of Abraaj’s investments. Four elements are measured in the index: financial performance, environmental performance, human development and private sector and corporate governance development.[11] It is the first sustainability index developed for private equity investing in growth markets.[12] The approach provides companies with the ability to identify areas for improvements and gain valuable insight into the relationship between financial performance and non-financial pillars.
