Dubai's ValuStrat advises on Dh15bn projects

By Staff

Dubai-based strategy consulting company ValuStrat said it advised on projects worth Dh15 billion last year is looking to expand business to other markets.

Over the last few years, ValuStrat’s strategy consulting services have grown significantly, its CEO Shahid Kazi said.

Through its offices in UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the company is covering a wide variety of sectors and clients - from start-ups and SMEs to large corporations and financial institutions.

He said ValuStrat has advised on projects worth Dh15 billion and is looking to expand its business as the regional market picks up owing to major developments, such as the commencement of preparations for Dubai’s World Expo 2020 win, and continued growth expected in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

“These new ventures need the right direction and advice to become successful. Hiring large consulting firms can be expensive. Some smaller companies or even large corporates may not want to spend so much money and yet get the right advice. Hence ValuStrat could be a service provider of choice,” said Kazi.

ValuStrat has executed advisory projects in education, hospitality, real estate, manufacturing and FMCG sectors.

“We endeavour to provide the ideal combination of quality work and reasonable fees and are thus doing our utmost to fill this large gap between the large multinational consulting firms and small local advisory boutiques,” he added.

“Different competitors exist for different service lines but there is no single competitor directly competing with all the services of ValuStrat. Our combination of strategy consulting, advisory, due diligence, asset valuations and asset divestment services is unique and provides businesses with a convenient one-stop shop for all these professional services,” added Kazi.

He hopes to take advantage of the growing number of businesses in the start-up or developing phase as well as the increasing trend of established corporations entering new geographies in the Middle East.
