VCBank is committed to capitalising on the unique opportunities that exist for venture capital based investment banking in the GCC and MENA regions. As such, the Bank is primarily focused on investing in fundamentally strong companies with strong revenue and market growth potential, but who are undervalued and seek finance to expand and prosper; and in value-creating real estate projects that will contribute to the social and economic development of the local community.

VCBank seeks out compelling investment opportunities across a variety of industry sectors. Adopting a flexible sector neutral approach enables the Bank to fully explore and maximise the potential that exists within a particular sector, and then to identify and invest in the most promising companies. Potential sectors for investment include, but are not limited to, telecommunications; infrastructure, power and energy; leisure and tourism; education; and healthcare.
VCBank helps ventures in various stages of the business life cycle. These embrace the spectrum from seed and start-up financing to mezzanine and bridge financing. Regardless of the stage of growth, however, the Bank’s focus is on companies that can demonstrate significant evidence of success and development, supported by solid business plans, strong products and outstanding management teams, with whom VCBank can partner and work alongside, to mutual benefit.
VCBank’s business model accommodates investments of varying sizes, which are carefully considered on a case-by-case basis according to strict investment criteria. Whatever the size of a specific investment, the Bank is committed to providing each portfolio company with the necessary support, direction and resources, in order to build value for their business, and provide investors with superior returns.
VCBank is primarily focused on the GCC and MENA regions. However, the Bank will consider and assess investments outside these core markets in line with emerging opportunities that will enable the transfer of technology and know-how, or provide job creation back to the Bank’s regional markets of focus.
