RIYADH – The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) has opened its first overseas office in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) as a sovereign fund for prospecting for investment opportunities in the oil-rich kingdom.
“The office will operate on the basis of ongoing agreements and platforms with partners in Saudi Arabia,” a statement said.
RDIF has partnered with the Public Investment Fund, the Saudi Arabia Wealth Fund and the oil giant Aramco.
