The Ince Group has announced the launch of a new consultancy business in the Middle East. Based in Abu Dhabi it offers a transaction and advisory capability for maritime financial needs.
The new business, led by Managing Director Knut Mathiassen, will tap into the wider Ince network. Adrian Biles, Chief Executive of The Ince Group said: “The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the fragility of the financial markets, specifically around the commodities industry. We have identified a unique opportunity to launch a new practice based in the Middle East, to advise clients on how to successfully navigate through this turbulent environment over the coming months and years.”
The new practice operates from an office based at the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), which has become a hub of international financial services in the Middle East. It is fully regulated by the ADGM’s Financial Services Regulation Authority (FSRA), whose rules are broadly modelled on the UK’s Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) and other related legislation.
