Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Sidra Capital (DIFC) Limited, a Category-3A company, licensed by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA), has completed the successful implementation of Agilis Investment Management Suite.
The deployment of Agilis at Sidra Capital lays down a strong technology platform that enables Sidra Capital to pursue the omnibus business model in relation to the advisory provided to family offices for both Wealth Creation and Wealth Preservation. It also fulfills Investment Banking, Corporate Finance as well as Family Office needs of both corporates and entrepreneurs.
Sidra Capital seeks to offer a hassle-free alternative to investors to tap capital markets. Agilis has also empowered Sidra Capital to ensure exemplary service levels and security to its clients, whilst enabling it to meet the stringent compliance and audit requirements of DFSA.
"We recognize the need to build a vibrant capital market that will support small to medium business in the MENA region with Investment Banking, Corporate Finance as well as Family Office solutions of both corporate and entrepreneurs. Our structure seeks to offer a hassle-free alternative for investors to tap capital markets." said, Ajay Arora, CEO Sidra Capital (DIFC) Limited.
"Understanding client centric financial requirements, strengthening their growth and providing scalability options are some of the primary services we provide our clients. The 360 degree experience we have of the capital markets provides our clients with a strong path for wealth accumulation, wealth transfer and wealth preservation." added Ajay Arora.
With its operating model, Sidra Capital is able to take away the cumbersome processes that investors would face otherwise, by offering a single bank account, a single custodian while Agilis IMS takes care of accurately segregating and maintaining the clients' accounts and clients' assets. This enables Sidra Capital to focus on its core goal of providing advisory services to revitalize the capital markets, the SME segments as well as entrepreneurs who can do with more advice and less obstacles.
Agilis Investment Management Suite has won many accolades and awards for its new generation technology and ground breaking features that the Investment Management Community has long wanted.
Sidra Capital conducted a thorough due diligence on a dozen leading software solutions in the investment technology space, using stringent evaluation criteria across front, mid and back-office functions including the ability for the software to manage investments across various asset classes including equities, money markets, debt, derivatives and structured instruments.
Sidra Capital chose Agile FT's Agilis Investment Management Suite for what Ajay Arora calls its "Double S" edge of Service & Security. "It was a perfect match as Service and Security are of paramount importance to Sidra Capital and we need to ensure the highest levels for our customers and regulators. We found that Agile FT stood by the same values in its organization and its software solutions."
