Alternative Investment Advisory WLL (AIA) was established in March 2019 to provide institutions and private investors conflict-free and fully aligned advisory services. AIA is an independent and management owned firm offering business advisory to financial institutions namely in wealth management capacity enhancement and product development strategies; capital markets advisory primarily in local (Kuwait domiciled) corporate private equity; and international real estate advisory services focused on UK and European private equity real estate investments.
AIA is led by its founding partners, Rasha Abdullah Alqenaei and Nasser Faisal Alkhaled who have previously worked together at Global Investment House, a regional asset management company headquartered in Kuwait City, where they previously held leadership roles in wealth management and real estate functions. Their skills, expertise and leadership were instrumental in Global’s successful re-emergence and the revival of Global’s real estate activities. Rasha and Nasser joined forces with Reham Fouad Alghanim, who brings a wealth of hands-on principal investment experience and a wide network of relationships.
The Founders come with hands-on recent, relevant experience and strong personal track-records from both “coverage” and “product” aspects, and the ability to connect these two strategically. We provide a gateway to our tested relationships and access to local and international opportunities. The Founders have deep knowledge and relationships with capital sources across the GCC.
AIA is truly independent and unrestricted or conflicted by corporate ownership or associated companies. Full alignment, long term commitment, superior local intelligence, and efficiency in execution are key features of our team.
