Years of of dedicated and relentless efforts have lifted Al-Seraj Group Holding Company to enviable heights, both in its diversified portfolios of investments and in its vast clientele. Today, Al-Seraj Group Holding Company assets are well diversified across 23 countries, 9 sectors and wide spectrum of Assets classes including Private Equities, Real Estate and Fixed Income. When we founded Al-Seraj Group Holding Company, our vision was to create a pioneer financial and investment services group covering the whole Middle East and the world at large, backed with strong partners and a world class team of experienced financial professionals, offering the finest services in investment solutions, securities brokerage, asset management and financial research/advice. In 2010, Al-Seraj Group Holding Companywent through a major organizational and capital restructuring that positioned Al-Seraj Group Holding Company firmly in the investment sector.
The aim of Al-Seraj Group Holding Company is to invest its funds in different types of investment options available in the world according to the proper commercial and economic basis to achieve profits for the shareholders and to contribute in the economic, commercial and social growth of the Kingdom.I would like also to point out that the Board of Directors have already adopted the investment strategy of the company that focused essentially on different areas of investment such as investment in real estate, renewable energy, agriculture, projects, oil and gas, acquiring strategic shares in selective under performing companies for re-structuring or buying them entirely. The strategy also includes planning to enter in small and medium-sized industries and contributing in their capitals.
The company's management is keen not to engage in any transaction prior to assessing the involved risks thoroughly and rely on economic feasibility studies to ensure achieving the desired goals to protect the company from any financial losses as a result of lack of adequate assessment for those investments. Al-Seraj Group Holding Company is managed by Board members, all of whom are having experience and good reputation, in addition to highly experienced and competent Chief Executive Officer and specialized skilled staff . The Board of Directors while forming various committees took into consideration the standards of corporate governance. However, the corporate governance report was already presented to the shareholders for the year 2011.
Finally, on behalf of myself and the Board of Directors, I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to all our clients and partners for their trust in us and also to all those who contributed in supporting and realizing the objectives of the company.
