Dubai-based Badwa Capital creates new real assets investment arm
Badwa Capital has moved into entry into the investment management business to target infrastructure and real estate assets.
The Dubai International Financial Centre-based boutique investment banking firm has set up the new division with an initial $100m (€88.4m) in capital to invest in real assets through sale-leaseback, built-to-suit, and other types of transactions.
The new business is expected to provide investors with income-generating investments, it said.
Fawzi Jumean, the chairman and partner at Badwa Capital, said: “Many companies are seeking to free up capital from real assets as they grow their core businesses.
“Through our new platform, we are well-positioned to support companies pursuing asset-light strategies while generating attractive risk-adjusted returns for our investors.”
The platform will be managed Jumean, Abdulaziz Alfalih, and Talal Luay Abu-Ghazaleh.
