ADGM offers a strategic location and the certainty of a professional environment benchmarked against globally recognised standards.  “Our move to ADGM marks another significant milestone for ADFG in what has been a period of outstanding growth for the business. We now have over $6 billion of assets under management having completed several strategic investments and acquisitions, in line with our investment strategy to unlock value for our shareholders.”

ADFG, established in 2011, is a leading global investment group that provides a wide range of investment opportunities and financial services. The group’s substantial and diversified investor base includes corporations, financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds and family offices.
