Amwal was founded in Qatar in 1998 by Sheikha Hanadi Nasser bin Khaled Al Thani, along with a group of prominent Qatari institutions including Qatar Foundation, Qatar National Bank and Qatar Navigation.
The first investment company to be granted a full onshore licence by the Qatar Central Bank, it has since become Qatar’s leading independent asset management and financial advisory firm, serving high net-worth individuals, family offices and institutional clients.
With a track record of award-winning performance, Amwal’s Qatar Gate Fund has been the top performing Qatar equity fund for several years.
In 2009, it received the “Qatar Deal of the Year Award” in Islamic Finance for structuring a USD 200 million Istisna mezzanine facility.
Since its inception, it has blazed a trail in the Qatari financial sector, including being the first company to offer wealth management and financial planning services to Qatar-based investors, first to launch a domestic Qatar equity mutual fund, launched Qatar’s first shari’ah compliant mezzanine fund, launched Qatar’s first money market fund and served as underwriter of the first non-Qatari IPO in the country.
Amwal is ideally positioned to capitalize on Qatar’s growing influence as a key player situated at the crossroads of Western and Asian trade.
Its corporate ethos is a reflection of Qatar’s long-term developmental goals, and mirrors the latter’s commitment to transformative initiatives, infrastructure investments and human capital development.
