A Century of Experience and Diversification

In 1900 we established a small trading business in the Portuguese East African city, Lourenco Marques. Seventy years later, in 1970, we shifted our home base to Dubai, UAE. Now, fast-forwarding 120 years since we first opened our doors, we have built Al-Dar Holding, a privately-owned capital led trading and investment company that is fueled by a strategy of growth through innovation and diversification.

In the 1990s , we founded Al-Dar Holding as a new entity to consolidate our rapidly growing and diversified portfolio of business ventures and investments. We continue to grow our portfolio of investments focusing on financial markets, healthcare, real estate, and technology.

At the center of our belief system is knowing that in order to build great businesses that stand the test of time we must be dedicated, patient and persistent. Thus, we’ve established a culture of agility throughout our organization, focused on learning and evolving everyday.
