Co-founder and CEO (Gulf) Mohammed Al Hassan said: "We are proud that GII has delivered outstanding performance that has created value and exited portfolios, paving the way for more real estate- income producing opportunities. Our real estate portfolio has reached $900 million and next year we target to touch $1.5 billion in similar deals in US and Europe."
GII said its total assets under management (AUM) has surged to $1.4 billion and it is now targeting to hit $2 billion next year.
