Almost all of our mandates have been through unsolicited approaches to us by clients, or where clients have been referred to us by professional advisers. Clients select us for a number of reasons. Some of the reasons why clients choose us are listed below.
We are unmatched in the region in the combination of breadth of experience across sophisticated financing structures and wide ranging access to institutional investors.
International Fund and Corporate Finance experience
We are experienced in dealing with global fund managers across asset classes. Our experience is across international buyout funds, hedge funds, real estate funds and secondary funds. We have an extensive cross border execution expertise. Additionally for corporate transactions our expertise spans across many sectors including manufacturing, logistics, technology, ecommerce, energy, healthcare, shipping, transportation, financial services, real estate, utilities, retail and luxury goods.
Independent - Client First
Our independence allows us to be discreet – we do not have conflicts of interest found in larger investment banks. We therefore give world class advice and act as trusted counsel to our clients. This gives our clients peace of mind.
We understand the region and our principals have built long lasting relationships with institutional investors. We are trusted by them. This is an important part of conducting business in the Middle East. We have been working with clients throughout their corporate life-cycle – we have known many since their early days.
Our relationships extend across companies, sovereign wealth funds, private equity firms, banks and family offices.
On the ground
Our proximity to our institutional investors allows us to build long-term client relationships.
