Our Story


Back in 2008, we started! The year which witnessed the biggest financial crisis in history, hitting all markets and different asset classes, also marked the first strides of Al-Riyada Finance & Investment Company “Riyada”, a Kuwait-based sharia compliant finance and investment company established with a paid-up capital of KD 15 million (approximately USD 53 millions), operating according to the Islamic law of the Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) and the Capital Market Authority (CMA), and supervised by an Islamic supervisory body.

Despite of the tough market conditions, we managed to achieve success simply because we invested in a different direction. 

Backed by an opportunistic approach, highly experienced team, research driven strategies, and a solid relationship network with banks, financing companies, and potential investors, we helped many clients to develop their businesses with a total finance secured exceeding KD 120,000,000 ( One Hundred and Twenty Million Kuwaiti Dinars).

Riyada managed to develop a significant investment portfolio, by providing comprehensive corporate finance solutions including access to finance channels, restructuring consultancy, and direct investment, tailored to the clients’ needs. 

Currently, “Riyada” is well positioned in the regional finance market to serve bigger clients segments. Its track record built since 2008 along the way has certainly granted the company distinction among its peers and built our firm on solid ground heading towards the future.
