Kuwait Financial Centre Markaz has added to its roster of investment awards after being named “Best Asset Manager in Kuwait” by Global Investor magazine. 

Markaz – a leader in the Middle East asset management industry – was praised for its healthy balance sheet, performance and diversity of product offerings as well as innovation, investment approach, sustainable growth in market share, assets under management and client base.

Amani Al-Omani, Executive Vice-President - MENA Equities, at Markaz said following the announcement of the award: “We are committed to achieving the best performance for our clients through following a research driven methodology and investing in high quality assets.

“Our investment policy is based on four pillars: research, outperformance, sustainable growth, and risk management. This has enabled Markaz to fare reasonably well in the financial crisis.” 

Markaz has won a string of awards recognizing it as one of the best investment companies in the region. Earlier this year it was named Best Investment Company in Kuwait by Arabian Business magazine and Best Investment Bank in Kuwait by international finance magazine Global Finance.
