SAUDI'S KING ABDULLAH GRANTS $10BN FOR NEW UNIVERSITY FUND

阿卜杜拉国王科技大学的捐赠基金因此成为全球第六大高校捐赠基金

Leading global fund managers and private equity firms are quietly lining up for a chance to manage another new and significant pool of money in the Middle East – an endowment for a new Saudi university with at least $10bn in assets.

The King Abdullah University of Science & Technology will not open until 2009 but it is already holding talks on its endowment with fund managers such as BlackRock and private equity firms including Bain Capital, people familiar with the matter say.

The university has received $10bn for its endowment from Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, which would make it the sixth-biggest university endowment in the world, said a university spokesman based in Washington.

People familiar with the endowment negotiations say they have been told the fund could grow to as much as $25bn, which would make it the world's second-biggest university endowment after Harvard's $35bn nest egg.
