Bahrain hosted the United Nations Investments Committee meeting in Manama yesterday. The committee makes investment recommendations to the UN Joint Staff Pension Fund (UNJSPF), a fund established by the UN General Assembly in 1949 to provide retirement, death, disability and related benefits for the UN staff and the other organisations admitted to membership in the Fund. Nemir Kirdar, chairman, Investcorp’s board of directors and member of the UN Investments Committee, said, “It is an honour to serve on the UN Investments Committee. We had a constructive meeting today and I am looking forward to continuing to support this important organisation and strengthening ties between the UN, Bahrain and the wider Middle East.” Amr Moussa, the former Secretary-General of the Arab League, gave a keynote address at a dinner that followed the meeting. In attendance were members of the UNJSPF, including Carolyn Boykin, representative of the UN Secretary-General, and Sergio Arvizú, chief executive officer of UNJSPF. Also at the meeting were six UN Investments Committee members, including Nemir Kirdar. Picture shows Moussa with participants at the meeting in Manama yesterday.
