Our Independent Advisory Board

Our advisory board reviews, monitors, scrutinises and sanctions all our decisions and strategies. They are truly independent in every sense; they are not part of the day-to-day management of Taamal Capital and are there to challenge the management whilst providing guidance as necessary.

Our independent advisory Board is made up of renowned and successful industry veterans. Given our standing in the industry, we have a big pool of independent advisors that we draw from depending on the size and nature of the transaction at hand
