Jeddah, April 22, 2015: Greenstone Equity Partners, one of the largest independent fund placement firms in the Middle East, announced its collaboration with London-based Charlemagne Capital, a $2.2 billion Emerging Markets specialist group.

The fund has consistently delivered an impressive performance with an annualized return of 36% over the last three years. Magna MENA generated 201% total return as of February 2015, outperforming the S&P Pan Arab Composite Index by 138%. 

In January 2015, Magna MENA fund was presented with the Best MENA Fund Manager Performance Awards 2015 in the category of MENA Equity Fund <$50 million. Charlemagne Capital was also awarded the 2015 Lipper Award for the Best Fund Group over Three Years in the “Equity-Small” category of the Lipper Awards for each of Switzerland, Germany, Austria and pan Europe.
