PIF makes SAR 64B profit in 2023

The Public Investment Fund (PIF) generated SAR 64.4 billion profit, against losses of SAR 14.7 billion a year earlier, backed by a 101% year-on-year (YoY) surge in revenues. Topline increased on income from investment activities, which reached SAR 93.8 billion, as Softbank swung to profits after market value losses in 2022.

 

Revenues from non-investment activities increased by 15% to SAR 237.6 billion due to growth in most lines of business, especially financial services and telecommunications. It is worth noting that the portfolio was somewhat affected by the decline in returns from the metals and mining sector due to the global decline in prices of metals and raw materials following an exceptional rise in 2022.

The value of PIF's assets jumped by 26% in 2023 to SAR 3.7 trillion ($990 billion), compared to SAR 2.9 billion in 2022. The rise was driven by several acquisitions and the transfer of a percentage of Aramco's ownership to the fund.

 

 

PIF's results were attributed the performance of global equity markets in 2022, which saw many of the fund's assets listed in global markets.

 

PIF is a long-term investor, and its performance is unrelated to short-term financial results. Moreover, the fund aims to achieve a sustainable value in the long term in order to diversify the local economy and create sustainable returns.
