Vibrant Capital Partners, a distinguished alternative credit investment manager, has announced the opening of a new office at Abu Dhabi Global Market.
The launch of this latest office marks Vibrant’s commitment to enhancing its international presence. This strategic move aligns with their vision to leverage ADGM’s conducive financial landscape and regulatory framework to fortify their position in the broader Middle East region.
The location is set to become the firm’s international headquarters, led by Volkan Kurtas, Vibrant’s Founder and Chief Investment Officer, and Alex Nerguizian, Managing Director. This step reaffirms their commitment to leveraging the experience and resources cultivated by the Vibrant team since its inception in 2006.
Volkan Kurtas, Vibrant’s Founder and Chief Investment Officer, said, “We are thrilled to establish our presence at ADGM, which is the ideal base for Vibrant to lead our international expansion plans. Moreover, over the course of two decades, we have witnessed CLOs and other securitised credit products grow from niche asset classes into critical capital market sectors.
“We are excited by the opportunity to apply our deep expertise and access in structured credit to help build a robust securitization ecosystem out of ADGM. We believe this would be to the benefit of financial markets in Abu Dhabi, the UAE, and the region at large for years to come,” he added.
Alex Nerguizian, Vibrant’s Managing Director said, “The UAE and broader GCC are home to some of the world’s most sophisticated institutional investors, and, as someone who was born and raised in the UAE, it is gratifying to see the region playing such a pivotal role in global financial markets. ADGM has cemented itself as a preferred destination for asset managers thanks to its dynamic business environment and solid legal framework. The opening of Vibrant’s international headquarters at ADGM is a significant milestone as we continue to expand our capabilities to best meet the evolving needs of existing and new clients and counterparties.”
Arvind Ramamurthy, Chief of Market Development at ADGM, said, “We welcome Vibrant Capital Partners to ADGM’s ecosystem. We are confident that ADGM’s dynamic ecosystem and progressive regulations will fortify Vibrant Capital Partners’ vision, supporting them in adding value to the region’s financial markets, and contributing to the continuous development of Abu Dhabi’s buzzing financial landscape and its strategic value to global finance. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact of Vibrant Capital Partners’ expertise in contributing to the growth and development of the financial ecosystem in Abu Dhabi and beyond.”
