AGH is a shareholder and invests in most of the alternative investments offered by the investment house (such as private equity, real estate and hedge funds). AGH’s vice-chairman is a member of Investcorp’s Strategic Partners’ Group. Investcorp continues to be one of the most respected investment banks both regionally and internationally.
Investcorp was set up in 1982 to help high-net-worth individuals and prime institutions in the Gulf states invest in companies in the West. Our focus has continued to be on serving the needs of these clients from the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and the United Arab Emirates – where there is demand for international alternative investment products.
The strong, long-term relationships we develop with our clients give them unmatched access to the diverse alternative investment products we offer. Moving toward alternatives as a greater proportion of assets under management reflects international trends and gives clients the potential for returns in excess of traditional asset classes.
We are different because we offer investments to our clients on a deal-by-deal basis, reflecting our investors’ preference for investment discretion. Our active relationships with our investors mean that we are constantly available to be guided by their wishes.
