On the announcement of the appointment of the board of directors, Nabulsi said: "This is a landmark moment in the founding of our company. The assembled board is of extremely high quality, particularly with an individual of the profile and stature of Shaikh Diab bin Zayed agreeing to the position of chairman of the company. It provides us a strong foundation from which to build the first truly pan-UAE and, ultimately, regional investment company, incorporating investment banking, brokerage, asset management and private equity."
