FCF Fox Corporate Finance conducted for the third time it’s “German Industry Capital Markets Day 2011” at Yas Island near Abu Dhabi.
The event has become the most important conference for Arab investors, looking at investment opportunities in the German-speaking countries. The executive management of 14 “Premier League Companies” from Germany, Switzerland and Austria (“GSA”) presented their companies to an audience of approximately 100 representatives of a selected group of institutional and high net worth individuals / family investors and industry experts from the Middle East.
The objective of the GID is to ignite discussions about cross border investments and business opportunities. During the conference, many dialogues between GCC investors and German executives opened questions of how GCC firms and German companies can co-operate e.g. in green field projects, or how joint activities in marketing and sales can be established. We also witnessed an increased appetite of GCC investors to invest in the “Deutscher Mittelstand”.
The conference hosted the following “Premier League Companies” with high growth and profitable business models:
– Air Berlin AG (airline)
– Allgeier Holding AG (IT services)
– Bartec GmbH (sensor)
– Centrotherm photovoltaics AG (PV)
– CeWe Color AG (consumer / digital)
