Euromoney 40th anniversary special: Focus on Duet Group

Duet Group aims to manage $1 billion in the Middle East and Africa within three to four years. Today the region accounts for about 10% of the $2 billion of assets managed by the alternatives house. Duet MENA, which was licensed by the Dubai International Financial Centre in October 2008, aims to build a multi-strategy Middle East and North Africa Opportunities Fund to about $250 million by mid 2011.
