Aseel Islamic Finance has several distinguished and experienced members at its helm, lending a guiding hand to the company.
Formerly known as the National Finance Company, Aseel Islamic Finance PJSC was established with the aforementioned name in late 1999 with a starting capital of AED 50 million. In early 2007, Addax Bank, an investment bank based in Bahrain, expressed interest in acquiring the National Finance Company through a Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) and successfully gained a controlling stake in the company. The issued no. of shares were 126.5 million of AED 1 each, constituting AED 126,500,000 of company’s paid-up capital.
The National Finance Company underwent a name change in December 2007, to its current name, Aseel Islamic Finance PJSC.
Waha Capital, an Dubai based company, showed interest in purchasing Aseel Islamic Finance and started acquiring shares in Aseel Islamic Finance and subsequently held a majority stake in 2012.
As part of an internal corporate restructuring, Waha Capital started searching for prospective investors for transfer of control of Aseel Islamic Finance, and also approached the Central Bank in 2013 for its liquidation.
While waiting for the Central Bank’s approval, several prospective investors took an interest in purchasing the company, one of which was Trizac Holding, LLC which is part of the Al Otaiba Group of Companies. In April 2014, Trizac Holding decided to purchase the stakes of Waha Capital and 3 other prominent shareholders of Aseel Islamic Finance. The Central Bank approval came through in April 2015, and the sale was finalized in the last quarter of 2015.
