Foursan Group is a private equity specialist with a primary focus on the Middle East region. Foursan currently manages Foursan Capital Partners I (“FCP”), a multi-country, multi-sector private equity fund targeting investments in accelerated growth companies in Jordan and surrounding countries in the Levant and North Africa. FCP will pursue majority or control stakes in companies in a range of attractive sectors including financial services, food and beverage, education, aviation, pharmaceuticals and healthcare. Foursan also manages the Jordan Fund, a multi-sector private equity fund focused on Jordan which it launched with Deutsche Bank.

CFA Jordan was established in 2002 to promote best-in-class ethical and professional standards within Jordan’s investment community as well as raise awareness about the CFA designation, cementing its status as the definitive global standard by which to measure serious investment professionals. The Financial Times has recognized the CFA Charter as an International Gold Standard, “a second passport”, for the investment professional and the Economist calls it “global currency” for investment professionals. Today, CFA Jordan is part of a global network of 137 associations in 58 countries and over 100,000 members which enables it to provide its members, sponsors and friends with a strong local and global network of prominent investment professionals.
