UAE’s leading investment firm and a subsidiary of International Holding Company (IHC), Alpha Dhabi Holding (ADH) has revealed its plans to invest nearly $2.18 billion in real estate, hospitality, healthcare, petrochemicals, and other promising sectors inside and outside the country.

The decision is following a meeting of the Board of Directors of ADH, in which the officials agreed on the conglomerate’s plans to expand its investment portfolio.

The ADH Board has confirmed that the company will continue its diverse investment strategies across its core platforms, expanding its real estate portfolio and growing its construction business, in turn boosting shareholder value. 

Currently, ADH holds 12 percent of Aldar, leading Abu Dhabi-based real estate company, with a $5.45 billion portfolio of quality real estate assets across the retail, residential, office, education, and hospitality sectors. 

Abu Dhabi’s real estate market is experiencing a rise in both demand and value, and ADH is seeking new directions to keep pace with the sector’s recovery, to build a solid foundation for development and growth.
