JEDDAH, December 2016: Sidra Capital has won its ninth award in 2016. In the presence of industry leaders, Sidra was awarded the Alternative Asset Manager of the Year 2016 at the Global Investor/ISF MENA Awards in Dubai.


“We keep an edge over our competitors by listening to investors, keeping abreast with their needs and responding to their requirements for capital preservation, and stable recurring income, in a world of uncertainty,” said Hani Baothman, Vice-Chairman of Sidra Capital. “This year we managed to replicate and exceed our success of 2015. Robust increases in revenues and AuM attest to our strong investment philosophy that prioritizes investor requirements.”


Sidra Capital closed its Riverside and Kinnaird House (Pall Mall) transactions in early 2016 followed by securing an income generating single let office property in Charlotte, South Carolina, USA. In Saudi Arabia the company has been mandated to advise on the Eden Residence project. Another big success in 2016 was the close of Sidra Mutajara Fund, a trade finance fund which pays regular dividends to investors and is seen as an alternative to traditional liquidity management products. Following the success of Mutajara the company is considering a follow up product in the near future.
