RIYADH: The Public Investment Fund (PIF) organized a Partners’ Forum on Monday as part of its efforts to support its portfolio companies as an active and engaged investor.
The event brought together 75 companies and 200 individuals from PIF portfolio companies working in a broad range of sectors.
Experts in digital disruption — including cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and data analytics — discussed future trends, and the risks and opportunities they create.
The forum also discussed the potential impact of technology on disparate industries across the PIF portfolio.
During the forum, the fund introduced and outlined the PIF Way — the mechanism by which it aims to support and drive value creation alongside its portfolio companies, building on the PIF’s independent governance and operational framework.
The PIF Way aims to help businesses in supporting the development of an effective governance structure, identifying and supporting new sources of growth and profitability, leveraging the fund’s infrastructure, and making the most of the advantages offered by the PIF’s extensive local and global network of companies, thought leaders, investors and government stakeholders.
