Western Gulf Advisory moves base to BFH
Manama, August 15, 2010
Western Gulf Advisory (WGA), a self-sustained investment and asset management company headquartered in Bahrain, will be relocating its head office to the Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH) complex.
The company will move to the 27th floor of the West Tower of the prestigious BFH complex.
Apart from Bahrain, WGA has attained AG status in Switzerland and also has an office in Hong Kong.
“WGA is diligently working to become one of the world’s leading financial advisory companies through its extremely confidential and sensitive approach,” a statement said.
Welcoming the addition the company to the BFH complex, Saladino Zarka, leasing and marketing director, Bahrain Financial Harbour Holding Company, said: “As a financial advisory company, WGA brings an added value to an already vibrant mix of our tenants.
“Bahrain is, today, a key hub in the Middle East for the banking and financial sector, and legal services provide the framework for catalysing growth and development. BFH has been an active participant in the country’s growth story, providing world class infrastructure and attracting world class players in these sectors to set up their operational base in the kingdom. Tenancy partnerships with firms like WGA will help consolidate this process further,” he added.
Omer Khan, chief financial officer, WGA, said: “We have watched BFH developing into a world-class complex that provides the ideal work-life environment for companies like WGA that have a global outlook. So it is self-evident for us to shift our operational base here. With the ebb in global capital flows, mostly due to a decline in bank lending, access to liquidity is limited whereas demand is high. And we are perfectly positioned to face this demand, considering the facilities BFH provides us with, most especially the security and communications systems based on cutting edge technologies that are so vital to our work and growth.” – TradeArabia News Service
