About Us

About us


As a leading Corporate Finance & Transaction Advisory services firm, we have had successful financial closures in 17+ countries across Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, and the GCC countries. Formed after the Global Financial Crisis of 2009 when liquidity had dried up in the market, our aim was simple – to help corporates continue operating with creative financial solutions.

We have been ranked 18th amongst 4533 companies in Dubai SME 100, the most prestigious Dubai Government SME awards, and have been recognized as a SuperBrand in the UAE in 2016 & 2020

By advising businesses on how to meet their financial challenges, we help businesses expand, facilitate trade across borders, reduce the gap in the supply chain, help with joint ventures and partnerships, and introduce growth partners where needed.

We have a dynamic team with a great blend of experience and youth, pushing each other and bringing out the best.
