Bahrain advisory firm moves base
Manama, August 16, 2010
Bahrain-based Western Gulf Advisory (WGA), a top investment and asset management company, will be relocating its head office to the Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH) complex.
Outside Bahrain, WGA has attained AG status in Switzerland and also has an office in Hong Kong to ensure timely and high quality services to its international clientele.
'As a financial advisory company to companies and individuals of high net worth, WGA brings an added value to an already vibrant mix of our tenants,' said Bahrain Financial Harbour Holding Company leasing and marketing director Saladino Zarka.
'Today, it has a strategic presence in Europe, the Far East and the Middle East, and is seeking to consolidate its global focus and portfolio by leveraging its network of international expertise. I am glad the company has chosen BFH as its base for undertaking this global thrust.'
'We have watched BFH developing into a world-class complex that provides the ideal work-life environment for companies like WGA that have a global outlook,' said WGA chief financial officer Omer Khan. 'It is self-evident for us to shift our operational base here.”
“With the ebb in global capital flows, mostly due to a decline in bank lending, access to liquidity is limited whereas demand is high. We are perfectly positioned to face this demand, considering the facilities BFH provides us with, most especially the security and communications systems based on cutting-edge technologies that are so vital to our work and growth,” he added.
'Equally important is that we will be functioning within a community of like-minded peers and companies,” Khan noted.
“We see the shift as a step forward in our career spanning 12 years, during which we have built upon the vision of our founder Ahsan Ali to consistently maintain the highest standards in financial advisory services,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Services
