Happy New Year

Realising lifetime ambitions, we are delighted to announce the formation of GSB Capital.  As many of you know, we have been on a mission since arriving in Dubai, endeavouring to disrupt a broken industry. And we’re now positioned to impact the financial services industry and broader society at large, for good.

Named after our beautiful children, GSB Capital (GSB) is now operating under the regulation of the DFSA, and we opened for business this week. We will be the first wealth management and financial guardianship company to truly focus on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) in the region. With ethical investing and social responsibility at the heart of everything we do, GSB will act with principled values and trusted performance to deliver exemplary results for its clients.

We are committed to making GSB the best company to work with.

To achieve this, we are:

  • Working with some of the most progressive, dynamic firms in the DIFC to bring our clients truly outstanding solutions to managing their wealth and financial guardianship goals.  We look forward to building prosperous working relationships with our providers in the years ahead.
  • Offering solid investment propositions leaning towards innovative, ethical and socially responsible companies.  ESG is central to the GSB Capital ethos, and as it becomes more widely recognised by companies as a key strategic strength, this will provide consistent, sustained growth.
  • Providing maximum flexibility to employees concerning hours and leave combined with above standard working conditions and highly competitive remuneration packages commensurate with their qualifications and experience.
  • Joining forces with a stakeholder-chosen charity selected annually by donating time, profit and resources to their cause.

We would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to our existing clients, many of whom we would consider close friends; their support has been instrumental in realising GSB’s ambition. For us, the vision we share with our clients will be the foundation for our future success.
