Gulf Capital wins award

Gulf Capital was named the ‘Best Alternative Investment Firm’ in the Middle East at the Banker Middle East Awards held in Dubai, UAE. 

Held last Thursday at the Emirates Towers hotel, the ceremony was attended by industry leaders and banking and finance experts from the Arab world.

The award was presented to Chris Foll, Chief Financial Officer at Gulf Capital, Richard Foll, Senior Managing Director at the firm’s Private Equity Group, Fidaa Haddad, Managing Director at the Private Debt Group, along with their teams. 

Commenting on the recognition, Gulf Capital CEO Dr Karim El Solh said: “We are extremely proud to have won this award and to be recognised as the premier alternative investment company in the region. As we celebrate our tenth year anniversary in 2016, this award is a testimony to the rapid growth, strength and diversity of our asset management platform. Gulf Capital manages today over AED14.7 billion ($4 billion) across 10 funds and investment vehicles. The firm invests across three alternative asset classes, namely private equity, private debt and real estate. Over the last year, Gulf Capital has been particularly active and productive across its businesses, on the investing, acquisitions and growing fronts. We expect 2016 to be equally productive, and we are fortunate to be one of the best capitalised investment firms in the region and to be able to take advantage of the unique investment opportunities in the current environment.”
