The Investment Banking Platform for the Emerging Markets

Investment Banking & Markets

We advise corporates and financial institutions from the EM on strategic alternatives, M&A activity and the financing solutions appropriate to their investment lifecycle. Depending on the financing solution chosen, we facilitate debt capital raise (DCM) and equity capital raise (ECM) across our network of market counterparties and professional clients.


Venture & Growth Banking

We have launched a specialist investment banking desk for venture and growth-scale companies. From Series A-stage companies to IPO readiness, we engage with founders, management, existing shareholders and potential investors working on companies disrupting industries and creating sustainable stakeholder value.


Investment Opportunities

We source and create opportunities for our investor network in the GCC and broader EM. We cater to small and mid-market segment of private banks, asset and fund managers, and family offices with a growing demand for alternatives providing attractive value as well as diversification to existing portfolios.


Custody & Securities Services

Despite custody and securities services being commoditised in the developed markets, the small and mid-market investors in the EM are typically overcharged and underserviced. We solve this with our cost-efficient fintech platform and in-house operational expertise. Our custody services range from safekeeping and settlement through the asset servicing lifecycle in a number of markets globally through direct accounts in Euroclear, SIX CSD, and Nasdaq Dubai. For primary issuances, we offer a range of agency and trust services in a range of asset classes.


Islamic Expertise

We have deep understanding of Islamic finance and the needs of Shariah-compliant investors across asset classes and risk profiles. We collaborate with leading Islamic finance lawyers and scholars in the GCC and beyond to bring to our network of investors a broad range of compliant opportunities. We will be launching in Q3 2023 our innovative Growth Sukuk Program for companies from the 'new economy' industries.


Market Infrastructure

Our team has decades of experience developing and project-managing infrastructure projects for Sovereigns and Supranational Agencies in the EM. These include consulting on market structures (primary issuance, syndication, primary dealership), yield curve development, custody arrangements and connectivity to the global markets.
