SIIL has made strategic & carefully planned investments in Qatar & the region, perfectly in line with the company’s philosophy of sustained profitable growth. One of the key profit generating streams for SIIL is the investment portfolio owned and managed by SIIL – based on a corporate investment strategy - where again multi-level protection is generated by the diversification of the type and geographical spread of shares, locally, regionally and internationally.

SIIL’s Investment portfolio is of two kinds, direct and indirect. The direct portfolio represents the strategic investments that Salam regularly makes by way of equity stakes in some promising companies in the region, thereby enabling it to have an influential role in the management of such companies through participation of SIIL’s top executives in their boards. The Indirect portfolio consists of the broad-based equity shares held by Salam in the local, regional, and international equity markets.
