Investment Philosophy

As an asset management group, wasl’s primary objective is to manage its portfolio with care, discipline and patience. wasl’s investment strategy is focused on delivering compelling returns while protecting and growing the asset value over the long term.

wasl's real estate portfolio is significant in scale and broadly diversified, encompassing residential, office, hotel, retail, industrial, healthcare and multi-purpose properties across Dubai. The Company has the largest portfolio of residential units in Dubai and includes many of the emirate’s best known landmarks, such the Grand Hyatt Dubai, Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, the Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, Emirates Golf Club, samari residences and our latest development wasl square.

The long-term view and the balanced diversification of the portfolio allow us to adjust wasl’s commercial risk, ride out market cycles and maximise value through operational improvements over time.

Our investment approach is value-oriented, focusing on real estate sectors that will support the growth of Dubai and further enhance its position as the destination of choice. wasl targets opportunities for equity investment, mergers and acquisitions as well as active engagement in operating businesses that offer the potential for vertical or horizontal integration and are consistent with our overall strategy of developing transferable knowledge and expertise.
