In 2013, KBBO Group has once again posted strong results. The group has continued to demonstrate its ability to outperform the market and strengthen its leadership in the investment sector, anchoring its position as one of the most successful Private Equity firms in the region, inspite of our relative youth in the market.
In economic terms, KBBO Group has consistently shown its ability to innovate and capitalize on market opportunities even in the most difficult of economic downturns, where calculated risks have resulted in shareholder value realization.
As we come to our 10th anniversary we maintain our commitment to the Abu Dhabi 2030 plan as well as remain true to the same ideals and objectives that have served us so well in the past. KBBO Group’s corporate culture reflects the values of its investors by exceeding expectations and fulfilling delivery on all obligations, be it financial or managerial.
I take pride in the fact that the KBBO Group has attracted and retained a team of experienced talent who have utilized their extensive market knowledge, evolved our investment strategy and tackled problems-solving in creative and bold ways to ensure our growth. We are on track to reach our objective of consolidating our position as a pre-eminent region-leading business.
The quality of our results is also underpinned by the very high standards of governance which we strive to raise year after year. Our commitment to the vision and mission of the group has been unwavering, despite the challenging environment faced by the private sector and the financial industry as a whole. With values such as integrity and humility that drive us forward, KBBO Group is convinced that a responsible approach to business is a decisive factor that will determine our long-term success.
We are proud of our achievements so far and excited as to what the future holds for the UAE and KBBO Group. I look forward to being part of the leadership team that will take the KBBO Group into the next ten years. There is always a more efficient and innovative way and I am confident that KBBO will never stop adapting to an ever evolving economic landscape.
