Founded in 1998, Wallwood Capital Management, provides a range of investment management services to private and institutional clients, to assist clients in achieving their financial objectives. Having now launched a DMCC representative office under the management of Founding Partner, Kenneth Campbell, Wallwood Capital Management DMCC has been established to address significant shortcomings in the financial services market in the UK, Middle East and Asia, and to engage in opportunities for growth.
Wallwood Capital Management DMCC launched in Dubai in early 2019, immediately introducing an exciting new Segregated Portfolio fund to the UAE market. Clients are onboarded in the UK, in-line with the regulations of the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), by Wallwood Capital Management Limited. As a result, clients benefit from the level of service and relevant regulatory protections of a fully authorised and regulated UK investment manager. Recommended by IFA’s and approved by leading fund platforms, Wallwood Capital Management is positioned to service Cash, ISA, SIPP/SSAS and QROPS investors. Each of the offices in Dubai and London offers its clients location specific services from high yield bonds through to execution online dealing, discretionary managed accounts and model portfolios.
The focus of the Segregated Portfolio fund, introduced to the local market by Wallwood Capital Management DMCC, is to invest in a balanced portfolio of companies and investment opportunities through the purchase of equity, secured debt or a combination involving the use of mezzanine finance and/or leveraged finance. With a targeted gross return of 8.5% per annum, paid biannually, and with customer focused terms, including responsive redemptions, the principle product is both unique to the UAE and offers returns not otherwise available in the local market.
With the financial services market in the UAE having undergone significant restructuring in recent months, to comply with regulations imposed by national and international regulatory bodies, access to financial products in the UAE has become restricted and often unnecessarily expensive. Our extensive market research shows most investors in the UAE are seeking to maximise annual income from their savings while maintaining liquidity, which at present they find difficult to achieve. Addressing the offering which meets the objective of these investors, Kenny Campbell, Founding Partner of Wallwood Capital Management DMCC said, “In providing access to a regulated, flexible and cost-effective investment offering, we know we are able to positively impact on the financial services market in the UAE. We are greatly encouraged by the levels of interest shown and look forward to delivering investment services for all our clients which help them meet their income objectives.”
Wallwood Capital Management DMCC, operates from new offices located in the DMCC’s premier location, the Almas Tower in Jumeirah Lake Towers area. This representative office strengthens the Wallwood Group’s presence and offers a single location for provision of bespoke sales and support services, as well as swift response to client demands in the region.“Whatever your financial objectives, and regardless of your experience of other regional investment managers, I encourage all those in the UAE, and across the wider GCC region, to look to Wallwood Capital Management DMCC to offer an investment opportunity that is unique to the local market and which meets their growth objectives while maintaining that level of flexibility and liquidity that so often evades investors. – Kenneth Campbell, Founding Partner, Wallwood Capital Management DMCC.
