Our company’s founder and chief executive, Nigel Green, yesterday confirmed that he has acquired Acuma, one of the paramount advisory firms in the United Arab Emirates.

The agreement was reached on Friday, and Nigel was presented to Acuma’s team in Dubai on Tuesday morning.

As one of the UAE’s most esteemed companies, I’m confident that we can enhance Acuma’s first-rate reputation and develop their higly respected brand, and of course we’re delighted to welcome them into the deVere Group fold.  It’s all about working together in order to continue ensuring that all our clients reach their ultimate financial goals.

The acquisition of Acuma is another exciting step forward in deVere’s ongoing corporate growth strategy in those markets where there’s increasing demand from expats and globally-minded investors.

The procurement of Acuma, which is based in Dubai with a satellite office in Abu Dhabi, and which is allied with other major financial institutions, will enable us as a strong, global organisation to broaden further our already impressive range of products, services and advice – great news for both our clients and our advisers.

We’re extremely fortunate to have Nigel’s intuitive leadership and ambitious vision for the business, which has always kept deVere ahead of the game, and will continue to do so during the very exciting times ahead.
