    Vibrant Capital Partners opens international headquarters in Abu Dhabi

    ADGM FSRA 28/11/2023
    Disclaimer: This is an external communication and is not an official statement or announcement from ADGM.

    Vibrant Capital Partners (“Vibrant” or the “Firm”), a leading alternative credit investment manager with approximately USD8 billion in assets under management, today announced the opening of its office at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international financial centre of the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Vibrant, through its wholly-owned affiliate, Vibrant Capital Partners International Ltd, has been granted a Financial Services Permission from ADGM’s Financial Services Regulatory Authority to conduct Regulated Activities under prudential Category 3C. The license enables Vibrant to manage a collective investment fund, advise on investments or credit and arrange deals in investments.

    The ADGM office will serve as Vibrant’s international headquarters and reaffirms the Firm’s commitment to the UAE and broader Middle East region. The office is led by Volkan Kurtas, Vibrant’s Founder and Chief Investment Officer, and Alex Nerguizian, Managing Director, who will serve as Senior Executive Officer of the ADGM office. Messrs. Kurtas and Nerguizian will draw upon the deep experience, track record, and resources that the Vibrant team has developed since its inception in 2006.

    Mr. Kurtas said, “We are thrilled to establish our presence at ADGM, which is the ideal base for Vibrant to lead our international expansion plans. Moreover, over the course of two decades, we have witnessed CLOs and other securitized credit products grow from niche asset classes into critical capital market sectors. We are excited by the opportunity to apply our deep expertise and access in structured credit to help build a robust securitization ecosystem out of ADGM. We believe this would be to the benefit of financial markets in Abu Dhabi, the UAE, and the region at large for years to come.”

    Mr. Nerguizian added, “The UAE and broader GCC are home to some of the world’s most sophisticated institutional investors, and, as someone who was born and raised in the UAE, it is gratifying to see the region playing such a pivotal role in global financial markets. ADGM has cemented itself as a preferred destination for asset managers thanks to its dynamic business environment and solid legal framework. The opening of Vibrant’s international headquarters at ADGM is a significant milestone as we continue to expand our capabilities to best meet the evolving needs of existing and new clients and counterparties.”

    Arvind Ramamurthy, Chief of Market Development at ADGM said, “We welcome Vibrant Capital Partners to ADGM’s ecosystem. We are confident that ADGM’s dynamic ecosystem and progressive regulations will fortify Vibrant Capital Partners’ vision, supporting them in adding value to the region’s financial markets, and contributing to the continuous development of Abu Dhabi's buzzing financial landscape and its strategic value to global finance. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact of Vibrant Capital Partners’ expertise in contributing to the growth and development of the financial ecosystem in Abu Dhabi and beyond.”
