This is an interesting attempt to set up a specific vehicle to attract investments from Islamic capital. MEACP, which set up a clean energy fund in 2008, would expand the fund to $500 million from $400 million upon the launch of the fund's sharia-compliant special vehicle. Investors from wealthy Islamic countries like Qatar, UAE, Kuwait or South East Asia had been expanding their investments in the CleanTech areas; but sometimes investments must be sharia compliant in order to receive investments. By setting up a purpose built investment infrastructure, MEACAP can invest and manage its investment portfolio on behalf of its Islamic clients, which include financial institutions, family funds and royal family members.A number of sectors had been attracting investments from these markets including Water Technologies; Soil remediation, Green Building materials, Energy Efficiency, Oil & Gas Recovery Technologies and Water Conservation Projects.Burrill & CompanyTraditionally, Burrill & Company invests in life science companies whose technologies and products are applicable across a wide range of life science sub-sectors: human healthcare therapeutics and diagnostics/devices as well as health/wellness related projects.
