Greenstone Equity Partners, the largest independent fund placement firm in the Middle East and leading provider of regulatory-compliant fund marketing and registration services in the GCC, won the award for “Best Risk & Compliance Implementation” at the 2nd annual MEA Finance Banking Technology Awards ceremony.
The MEA Finance Banking Technology awards provide international recognition and celebrate the achievements of the region’s leading banks, financial institutions, and technology providers to highlight firms that build smarter, more effective, and more efficient solutions for their clients. The independently judged event is held annually by MEA Finance, the publisher of MEA Finance and MEA Business, which is considered the authoritative voice of the Middle Eastern and African banking and finance industries. The winners were announced at a gala event held at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa, Dubai, with over 100 industry leaders from the banking and financial services ecosystem in attendance.
Greenstone Equity Partners’ selection as the winner of this year’s “Best Risk & Compliance Implementation” from the hundreds of nominations submitted to MEA Finance across the various awards categories demonstrates further validation of Greenstone’s rapidly growing regulatory compliance program.
Reflecting on winning this prestigious award, Alex Gemici, Chairman & CEO of Greenstone Equity Partners, said:
Having made substantial investments in building our firm’s licensing and compliance program, we are grateful to be recognized for our dedication to regulatory compliance leadership within our industry. This dedication and focus allows us to serve the GCC investment community through our current partnerships with top-tier global fund managers who collectively have AUMs of well-over $1.4 trillion.
Jeff Evans, Managing Director of Greenstone Equity Partners, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm, added:
Greenstone’s regulatory compliance program has filled an important gap for leading fund managers who wish to raise capital from the region but lack the required licensing to do so. Our program allows fund managers to partner with Greenstone to remain fully compliant with local laws without the requirement to obtain their own licensing. Our simple onboarding process and collaborative approach have been ideal to global institutional fund managers who are able to retain full control of their local investor relationships while benefiting from compliant fundraising.
