What we do

Why we do it

Valia Investments connects innovators and investors from the Middle East to U.S. counterparts in the private equity arena. As a boutique private equity consultancy, Valia Investments offers deals tailored to your portfolio and strategic needs. We provide legal support and business analysis along the way, and we pay special attention to companies poised for growth in Middle Eastern markets.

We firmly believe that significant inefficiencies exist within certain US asset classes. It is our duty as Middle Eastern partners to exploit these inefficiencies, and ensure that the sophisticated capital sources from the MENA region get the international exposure each deserves. Valia strives to bridge the gap.
