    Arab Investment Company: Best Corporate Finance Advisory Team Kuwait 2016.


    A boutique investment firm with a comprehensive array of services, Arab Investment Company (AIC) operates as a classic merchant bank focused on quality and skills honed to perfection over time. Tapping into Kuwait’s heritage as a centre of financial expertise, AIC has established a strong reputation in corporate finance. The firm is one of the leading merger and acquisition facilitators in the country and has helped major multinational companies structure investment projects both domestically and abroad.


    Part of the Bukhamseen Group of companies, one of Kuwait’s largest conglomerates, AIC has the reach and executorial power usually associated with larger firms whilst retaining the operational nimbleness of a boutique bank. The company is one of only a handful of firms that is already fully compliant with Kuwait’s broadened capital market regulatory framework which aims to allow local financial services providers to easily adapt to, and embrace, global standards. Recognised as a trendsetter, AIC helped shape the new framework by providing the market regulator with significant input throughout the drafting process.


    In a market that not only requires expertise to navigate but also a degree of who-you-are and who-you-know confidence, AIC towers well above the crowd. The CFI.co judging panel notes that the big boys of global corporate finance and asset management regularly call upon AIC to help structure and seal complex deals. The judges are indeed pleased to offer the Arab Investment Company the 2016 Best Corporate Finance Advisory Team Kuwait Award.
