Blackstone Group, a private equity company, partnered with Saudi Arabia’s independent wealth fund, declared that they would splurge $40 million to make investments in infrastructure initiatives, generally in the United States
Blackstone, co-financed by Trump promoter Stephen Schwarzman, signed a non-binding contract with the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia to make progress with this project, the Hill informed.
Saudi Arabia’s PIF had agreed upon investing $20 million in the initiative, while the remainder of the capital would arrive from outside sponsors.
Even though Blackstone claims the fund has been sorted out between the companies throughout the past year, the partnership is non-binding, meaning that there is still no official structure for the fund and the companies are still going over specific components of the agreement, Forbes informed.
Blackstone and PIF both gave a vote of assurance to the brand new partnership.
“This potential investment reflects our positive views around the ambitious infrastructure initiatives being undertaken in the United States as announced by President Trump,” PIF executive director Yasir al-Rumayyan mentioned in a statement.
“This will create well-paying American jobs and will lay the foundation for stronger long-term economic growth,” the president of Blackstone, Hamilton James stated.
The U.S. and Saudi Arabian partnership companies happened when President Trump visited Saudi Arabia as the primary stop of his first trip overseas as President.
Trump has already agreed upon a string of agreements with Saudi King Salman strengthening their military and economic partnerships on his very first complete day in the country.
