KIBC has an agreement of cooperation in place with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce (FICCI) which is the largest business organization in India drawing its strength from diverse regional chambers of commerce and industry across India and the world, reaching out to over 2,50,000 companies. KIBC also has signed an agreement with the EXIM Bank of India to fund India focused projects.

A stellar achievement of KIBC was the launch of the World’s First Sharia Compliant India focused Open Ended Equity Fund in 2006 in association with Al Madina Investment Company. This highly successful 10 year duration fund triggered similar funds in the region and was widely acclaimed by the Government of India. Kuwait investors who earned a return of 60% in the very first year remained substantially invested for extended periods.
