We collected information on the Middle East’s asset management companies from questionnaires, publicly disclosed data from websites and financial statements, and capital market authorities. We only considered companies that are based in the Middle East. We excluded sovereign wealth funds, venture capital funds, family-owned investment companies, and regional offices of international companies.
We ranked companies based on:
The value of their total assets under management as of December 2021. We considered all fiduciary assets that the company invested on behalf of its clients— including equity and debt mutual funds, discretionary portfolios, real estate funds, and private equity—as assets under management.
