Reuters is reporting that Loss-making Monte dei Paschi, which received 4.1 billion euros ($5.58 billion) of state aid last year after being hit by the sovereign debt crisis and a derivatives scandal, is looking to raise 3 billion euros in fresh capital. A sovereign fund in Oman is also interested in acquiring stake.

Qatar Investment Authority is listed in the Middle East Investors Directory with the code BD44
