Decker & Co. serves institutional investors, including many of the leading emerging and frontier markets mutual fund managers, from its offices in the U.S. and Asia. The partnership is designed to combine the strengths of the two platforms and will work towards providing U.S.-based investors with thought-provoking and value added research, along with seamless execution across the Middle East and African equity markets.

“Arqaam’s unrivaled ability to execute across key capital markets in the Middle East and Africa coupled with Decker’s strong relationships with North American institutional investors make this partnership a natural fit," said Riad Meliti, Chief Executive Officer of Arqaam Capital. "I am looking forward to our two firms working closely together as we connect even more global investors with this dynamic and rapidly growing region.”
