In 2008, Mr. Saad Al Saad – Chairman and Managing Director of National Industries Group Holding (NI Group) – founded the Eagle organization through the creation of Eagle Proprietary Investments Limited (EPIL) – a private investment firm focused on the financial industry and its supporting sectors. EPIL was established in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) in 2008. Since its founding, EPIL has invested in and managed a globally diversified portfolio comprised of high-growth companies and assets.
As part of its role within NI Group, EPIL was mandated by Mr. Al Saad to provide strategic advisory services to the group’s Senior Management and its operating subsidiaries within the infrastructure & industrials, manufacturing, financial services, real estate, and energy sectors, across a range of activities relating to acquisitions, divestitures, financial restructuring, and capital raising. To date, EPIL has advised on and executed mandates in excess of $2.1 billion for NI Group and its subsidiaries.
Building on its success in advising NI Group, Eagle expanded into financial advisory for select 3rd party clients In June of 2012, by establishing Eagle Investments Limited (EIL), a DIFC registered and Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) regulated company. In order to further advance its advisory capabilities, Eagle launched a Joint Venture with its portfolio company, Accordion Partners to offer Accordion’s corporate & operational finance, and CFO Leadership services to MENA region clients. Through this Joint Venture, EIL and Accordion work seamlessly across all client engagements to offer a robust suite of services and deal execution capabilities.
Today, Eagle is led by Chief Executive Officer, Raj Dvivedi – whose career spans over 35 years in global finance, including in Senior Management and Executive roles with Citigroup and its predecessor firms.
