Preqin has established a new permanent office in Dubai, its 12th globally and its second in the EMEA region.
Located in the Dubai International Finance Center (DIFC), the office opens with a team of three dedicated to serving the alternative assets community in the Middle East. Over the next six months, Preqin expects to grow that to five people.
The Middle East has a network of fund managers, investors and service providers active in the alternative assets space.
The new office reflects the strong growth of the USD 11 trillion alternative assets industry, which has continued even as the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted business activity in 2020. It is part of Preqin’s commitment to being embedded in the communities that it serves, and is part of an ongoing program to open regional offices beyond the traditional economic hubs of New York, London and Singapore.
Preqin is the foremost provider of data, analytics and insights to the alternative assets community.
