About Us

The NAEEM Group is among the region’s leading investment houses, offering a comprehensive suite of financial services to major MENA-based investors while acting as the broker of choice for foreign institutional clients seeking to invest in the region’s capital markets. With paid-in capital of USD 301 million, NAEEM is a hybrid financial services firm, in that it holds significant proprietary investments owned alongside clients while at the same time housing a fully-fledged investment banking arm. The NAEEM Group delivers financial solutions through five divisions: Brokerage, Investment Banking, Private Equity, Asset Management and Research. Serviceability and client relations are a priority for the NAEEM Group, both supported by an expanding network of branches and offices; the Group currently has a physical presence across Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, as well as in Zurich, Switzerland.
Our Strategy
Our strategy is to provide innovative client solutions and world class investment performance, capitalizing on our regional market insight, on-the-ground know-how and range of investment capabilities that few regional firms can match. Structural reforms and strong economic growth in the region have created a growing demand for institutional investment banking services, thereby increasing opportunities for investment in diverse industries in a number of countries. Our products and services thus cover activities that effectively leverage our competitive advantages while maximizing earnings.
