“ Halkin combines the skill set of an Investment Banker and a mind set of a Private Banker in creating a value proposition for UHNW clients. ”
Bashir Ahmad, CEO Halkin Investments
ABOUT HALKIN INVESTMENTS HOLDINGS LIMITED
We provide a client-centric, highly personal service, combined with the technical skills of modern finance.
Our approach was borne out of the frustration our clients felt at being unable to find financial institutions capable of meeting all of their financial requirements, or those free from the conflicts of interest inherent in so many larger organisations or Private banks.
The strengths and competency is spread through various financial and non-financial institutions across the market place, and no one institution is geared up to serve the holistic needs of demanding clientele. The Halkin model is to package the most competitive solution by cherry picking and navigating through various financial and non-financial institutions in structuring transactions.
Underpinning our offering is our-deep routed belief in the importance of trust and in ensuring our interests are aligned with those of our clients. Our clients’ confidentiality is at the forefront of our concerns and we ensure the highest level of discretion at all times.
Our team of experienced professionals come from complementary financial backgrounds, leveraging their extensive wealth of knowledge to meet the needs of our global clients.
Independence, Transparency and Alignment of Interests are at the forefront our day to day.
