Talal Al Dhiyebi Talal
Chief Executive Officer
"Aldar is the UAE’s largest real estate development and asset management company by market value and the market leader in Abu Dhabi. Over the years we have created a unique business model comprising two core businesses: a large and diverse, actively managed income-generating investment portfolio and a development business of premier destinations and manager of major projects. The combination of these two businesses has delivered strong cash flows, revenue visibility as well as meaningful profit growth through market cycles. Aldar’s strategy for value creation focuses on three pillars: customer centricity, operational excellence, and expansion underpinned by innovation, sustainability and a diverse and skilled workforce. Further, we emphasise robust governance as a key driver for success, ensuring that structures and decision-making processes are both transparent and comply with best practices."
Chief Financial & Sustainability Officer
“Our business operates with prudent capital management, robust financial controls and well-defined debt policies for both our asset management and development management businesses. Aldar’s dividend policy is clearly set out and is based on the underlying cash generation of these two core businesses thereby providing a high degree of visibility with respect to shareholder returns. Importantly, we have outlined a clear sustainability strategy that embeds sustainability goals and targets across our businesses. We believe firmly that progressing our sustainability agenda is key to ensuring positive growth and impact over the long term.”
Jassem Saleh Busaibe
Chief Investment Officer
“Aldar Investments, which represents the mainstay of our recurring income business, has significantly expanded in recent years and we continue to explore further avenues to grow and diversify our total assets under management. Aldar’s portfolio of mature, income-generating assets has been a key driver in the delivery of consistent and strong dividends to our shareholders. Aldar Investments was created as a standalone entity in 2018 and since remains the most efficient platform for real estate ownership in the region with a credit rating of Baa1 from Moody’s – the highest for any non-GRE (government-related entity) in the region.”
Chief Development Officer
“Aldar’s development business makes up half of the group’s total revenue . The majority of the revenues come from off plan sales of land and homes developed within finely crafted master planned communities fees for development management services make up the balance providing a compelling diverse and resilient income profile. Our large and strategic land bank situated in prime locations across Abu Dhabi together with our strong partnership approach provides the opportunity for continued growth and expansion both by sector and geographically.”
Aldar is the largest developer within Abu Dhabi and, since inception, has completed approximately 26,000 residential units across the emirate.
Aldar owns and manages a diverse asset management portfolio of AED 20 billion of assets, all within Abu Dhabi.
