The Firm

Ithmar Invest is a leading regional investment banking firm focused on providing independent financial advice on mergers, acquisitions, restructurings, financings and capital raisings to corporations, private equity funds and family-owned institutions in the MENA region. We believe that what sets us apart is our dedication to:

  • Excellence: Demanding excellence and superior quality in all that we do
  • Integrity: Emphasizing our tradition of integrity and transparency in all our dealings
  • Client-Focus: Cultivating long-term relationships with clients, through deep roots in local markets
  • Specialization: Ithmar Invest’s focus is on advisory work and we have no research, trading or brokerage activities. Instead, we remain dedicated to providing conflict-free and client-focused advice
  • Independence: Ithmar Invest is an independent privately-owned firm with significant ownership by its Managing Partners. In contrast to our competitors, we are not part of a larger financial institution that serves many competing interests

We are an independent firm that is unencumbered by the potential conflicts of interest inherent in bulge bracket firms and investment banks. We are never in a position where our client's best interests are in conflict with our own. We serve as trusted senior advisors, providing classical investment banking advice and always recommending ideas and strategies that we would pursue ourselves were we acting in management's capacity. 

As a boutique advisory firm, our core strength is intellectual rather than financial, and we regard our bankers as partners in the business because they are our most important asset. As such, we continuously strive to create a collegiate and professional atmosphere at our firm, where meritocracy and the partnership approach are emphasized.
