Our goal is to continuously add value for clients through rigorous bottom-up and top-down fundamental analysis, seeking an absolute-return driven strategy by investing in the equity markets of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). We also provide our clients access to the world of fixed income products, with the coverage starting from the basics of plain vanilla bonds and Sukuks, to reach a variety of structured products and notes across the globe. Furthermore, we maintain an extensive experience in managing money market portfolios, being one of the pioneers in Jordan in providing such a service.
