MerchantBridge Launches Mesopotamia Fund to Invest in Iraqi Equities

Mr. Basil Al-Rahim, MerchantBridge Group Chief Executive Officer, said today:

"We believe in long term investment opportunities in Iraq. Its sovereign wealth may well exceed many of its GCC neighbors by 2020 and this new fund will be an early mover in the trend towards greater international focus on Iraq's exciting investment landscape."

MerchantBridge is the largest private investor in Iraq to date, with investments of over $1.5bn in debt and equity since 2003.

Mr. Eric le Blan, MerchantBridge Chief Operating Officer, added: "We are proud to launch the Mesopotamia Fund as it will tap into the ISX, which although it is young, offers record growth for savvy investors who are considering investing in Iraq. This is an ideal opportunity for investors with a long term view and it offers an immediate and diverse entry into the Iraqi market".
