Al Masah Capital Limited a Leading Alternative Investment Firm
Recognized by Forbes as one of the top leaders in the Arab world, Dash’s primary work is in the banking and investment sector as the founder and current CEO of Al Masah Capital Limited. First formed in 2010, the firm currently has over $1 billion in funds and offers a wide range of investment services. The firm conducts its own in-house research on investments and offered services include asset management, private equity, hedge funds and real estate investment opportunities to corporations, families, and individuals.
Dash and his firm are well-known for providing outstanding returns to their broad base of investors. The firm has also assisted new companies with the underwriting and launch of their initial public offerings. In his work, Dash focuses on assisting companies to acquire the funds that they need to support growth and be able to successfully scale up their operations.
As the company’s creator and top leader, Dash has been the guiding force in its most prominent investment decisions. One of Dash’s most popular and successful private equity initiatives led to the expansion of operations of AVIVO Group. As one of the largest providers of integrated healthcare in the greater UAE region, the AVIVO Group’s main goal is to provide top quality healthcare services to nearly two million patients.
Investment firms such as Al Masah, offer their clients the opportunity to diversify their portfolios and have access to greater opportunities for growth. Alternative investments offered by the firm can lower clients’ risk of loss from factors such as inflation, widespread economic downturns and social or political upheaval.
In 2016, Dash founded a second firm, Regulus Capital, where he is also the CEO and member of the board. Through this company, Dash offers a wide range of consultancy services in the management and leadership space. Through Regulus Capital, Dash advises small to mid-sized enterprises who specialize in consumer-driven sectors of the marketplace, including logistics, food and beverage, healthcare and education.
