Established in 2011 and headquartered in the Dubai International Finance Centre, Dalma Capital’s goal is to identify the next generation of alpha generating ‘edge’ fund managers, strategies and opportunities.
AIMgp Accelerator allows portfolio managers to maximise alpha generation with the Alternative Investment Management Global Platform (AIMgp) with a unique three-pillar approach of providing:

This provides a complete, fully integrated solution for hedge funds, private equity, venture capital and family offices to efficiently launch, manage and grow funds in a cost effective manner.
At Dalma Capital, we believe the key to alpha generation is having an edge. This is the one consistent factor for outperforming managers across asset class, strategy and geographies. We are asset class, region and strategy agnostic and only work with those managers who can demonstrate a durable edge in their market or strategy. We specialize in the management of Hedge Funds, Private Equity Funds and Private Debt Funds.
Dalma's investment Banking and Structuring desks are focused on the next generation of Digital Assets - focusing on developing products suited to institutitonal and professional investors.
Dalma Island in the United Arab Emirates has been a historical centre for pearl diving, the treasure trove of the region. In the 20th century, the UAE has reinvented itself as a global centre of oil production; in the 21st century, it has diversified to become a global center for financial services and a regional powerhouse for investment.
Dalma Capital intends to build on the region’s heritage of unearthing hidden value, by bringing to light a new generation of emerging fund managers interested in exploring the region’s inherent wealth.
Dalma Capital comes from a pedigree of hedge fund management with over 80 years of combined professional asset management industry experience and represents the next generation of managers with an integrated global infrastructure, cutting edge technology and cost effective solution.
