AIC was established in late 2006 with a capital of 15 million KD under the rigid supervision of Central Bank of Kuwait, as an independent, knowledge-based and result-oriented finance and investment company, operating as sole investor, investment partner, wealth manager, as well as provider of corporate finance advisory services, with full execution capabilities. Since inception, AIC followed an integrated approach which fuses the market realities with proven and state-of-the-art strategies, leading to optimum performance.
In 2016, AIC has completed its registration file with the Capital Market Authority (CMA), and was granted the CMA license on 4th Jan 2016 under the License No. AP/2016/0001 and Registration No. AP/2016/0041, to practice the following activities:
Furthermore, since incorporation, AIC is licensed by the Central Bank of Kuwait to extend credit to retail and corporate clients.
To date AIC’s achievements ranged from conducting private placement services, including the preparation of Private Placement Memoranda, financial engineering services, companies’ restructuring services, establishing trusts for key clients, and leading syndicates of advisory parties. Today, AIC is a leading asset management and provider of corporate finance advisory services with total assets under management exceeding $500 million. We seek to create positive economic impact and long-term value for our stakeholders, the companies we invest in, the companies we advise, and the broader global economy. We do this through the knowledge, commitment and dedication of our team of professionals.
Additionally, AIC strives to maintain a status of knowledge-contributor to the local and regional financial services environment. To that end, AIC has two fully automated real-time indices, one for listed Islamic Banks in the GCC, and the other on Sharia-conform Kuwaiti-listed companies, both posted on the Thompson Reuter’s service.
