About the Firm

Trucial Investment Partners is an asset management and advisory firm.

The firm is a spin-out of the Dubai International Capital Private Equity team. The founders established Trucial Investment Partners following a successful track record of international private equity investment across various sectors, and in markets such as the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.

Our team played a leading role in the full investment cycle of DIC’s private equity activity. This involved the deployment of over US$ 2 billion of equity and US$ 6 billion of total capital, the management of these acquisitions during the ownership period, and the successful divestment of these assets with attractive returns on equity invested.

History of the Name

The origin of the name Trucial comes from the history of the Gulf region, and is derived from the “Trucial States”, a group of Sheikdoms who chose peace, stability and cohesiveness, by entering into the Trucial Treaty of 1820. These “Trucial States” remain a symbol of unity, and strength through partnership. They are known today as the United Arab Emirates.
