Based in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Gulf Capital is a leading alternative asset management company focusing primarily on late-stage control buy-outs, growth capital, real estate development and credit business.
The Firm was set up with a clear focus: to launch the most dynamic and sophisticated alternative asset management company in the Arab region. Our employees, directors and 250 shareholders all strive towards building a world-class regional institution.
We have distinguished ourselves with a control growth buy-out investment model, and this is widely considered a catalyst for change and growth.
This ambitious goal is backed by the Firm's unique attributes as one of the largest and best-capitalized alternative asset management companies in the region and by having some of the most influential and respected businessmen in the Gulf sit on our Board of Directors and Industry Advisory Board.
Our Private Equity strategy is to acquire strategic stakes in highly profitable and fast growing companies in select industries in the Gulf region and, through active ownership, accelerate their growth and profitability ahead of an eventual exit. We are active investors with a particular focus on operational improvements and regional or product expansion.
Our Credit Business focuses primarily on providing liquidity and growth capital for regional companies and acquisition finance for private equity firms in the Middle East and Turkey.
Our Real Estate Business, "Gulf Related", focuses on developing Landmark Mixed-Use Real Estate destination Projects in the Arabian Gulf region. Gulf Capital has teamed up with The Related Group, the most prominent privately-owned real estate firm in the United States.
