Dubai, September 16th, 2018
RIF Trust Investments LLC, the Dubai-based citizenship-by-investment leader in the GCC and an active member of the SBC, has officially merger with Latitude Consultancy, the leading British firm in the Investment Migration industry. The full transaction took place last September 1st.The merger will expand Latitude’s international network to the ever-important Gulf region and will combine RIF Trust’s leading sales force in Dubai with Latitude’s unrivalled experience in the Investment Migration industry.
Mimoun Assraoui, CEO of RIF Trust and new Vice Chairman of Latitude, comments: “Since our inception over 4 years ago, our goal has been to work consistently and steadily towards creating the most successful firm in the industry, and now with this merger, we are well on our way to achieving that goal. The depth and experience of Latitude’s senior management combined with our strong sales culture is sure to bring great results”.
David Regueiro, COO of RIF Trust and Latitude and new board member, confirmed that both firms will continue to operate under their existing brands until the end of this year. “RIF Trust has been operating in the UAE for over 4 years and has developed a strong brand and market awareness, so we agreed to maintain the RIF name until we complete a rebranding at some point in the new year”.
The Investment Migration industry is expected to see further consolidation in the months ahead, as fragmented and varied-size players explore the merits of joining forces in an ever-growing competitive marketplace.
