As manager for the European operations of the Al-Murjam Group, one of Saudi Arabia’s largest family-owned commercial and industrial international developers, Abdulla Silim supervised offices in Paris, Geneva and Nice. His responsibilities included managing the group’s real estate holdings and aviation division, as well as liaising with the group’s London-based oil and gas company.
Abdulla subsequently joined Gulf Capital Group, a Dubai-based investment bank. He has since formed and serves as partner for Globescan Investments Inc., a Toronto-based international corporate finance advisory firm. Abdulla has a thorough understanding of the corporate culture in North America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Abdulla advises on BMG’s Middle East and North African (MENA) practices and business development, a division that is rapidly expanding thanks to BMG’s status as the first Shariah-compliant precious metals fund in Canada.
