Azimut to set up Egypt-focused equity fund: Italy-based asset manager Azimut Group has completed the procedures to establish a fund to invest in publicly-traded Egyptian companies, Managing Director Ahmed Abu Saad told the local press. The fund will be based in Luxembourg, and is expected to launch before the end of 2019, Abu Saad said.
