Project Development, Acquisitions and Equity Investments – GAI systematically seeks out the best of both local and international partners. The local partner is usually an established entity that has substantial business dealings in fields related to the project as well as contacts in the local official and business communities. The international entity is almost always the technical partner contributing expertise to the venture and sharing in its financial risk.
The group has built and invested in unique enterprises drawing on historical strengths included the following:
GAI initiated FLAG Telecom (Fiber Link Around the Globe), which brought together Verizon (USA) Marubeni (Japan) and the Dallah-Al Baraka Group (Saudi Arabia) to establish a $1.8 billion undersea fiber-optic cable connecting the United Kingdom to Japan via Egypt.
Gulf Associates has represented such companies as Volkswagon, ExxonMobil, Revlon, Chase Bank, Rockefeller Group, Johnson & Johnson, Schweppes and Schering-Plough.
