Borus referenced the adage attributed to Rothschild, suggesting that the time to invest is during tumultuous times. He noted that while many investors may be hesitant, such situations present unique opportunities for those with the courage and capital to act. Ibex Investors decided to bolster its investments in Israel, emphasizing the importance of seizing opportunities even amidst challenging circumstances. This new fund marks Ibex’s fourth, following the successful raising of $100 million for its third fund in 2020.
