This step reflects AlKhair Capital’s commitment to offering the best services and experiences to its customers within the investment sectors in the region.

The evening included a keynote speech from Mr. Yousef Al- Shelash in which he said: “The approval from the Dubai Financial Services Authority and our new branch at DIFC is a major step forward in our growth strategy across the region, and we are extremely delighted to extend our capabilities in financial and investments services to clients in the UAE. Over the years, we have differentiated our service offerings and we are glad to bring our expertise and industry knowledge to DIFC, in line with our envisioned future.”

Al Shelash added: “As a company, we have analyzed the market needs and evolution of Dubai as a hub for Islamic finance, which is our forte. The burgeoning demand for Sukuk instruments is an encouraging sign of the market demand and potential in the coming years. We are confident that AlKhair will be able to add value to the industry as a whole with our presence in Dubai.”

Al Shelash emphasized the importance of the support that they received from all of the leaders in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates for the development of intra-regional trade under the umbrella of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
