Making a Sustainable Impact Since
Starting as a national initiative to explore sustainable growth opportunities in the MENA region, DIF has grown from an idea to one of the biggest investment funds across the globe. As one of the leading global asset managers, we’re still led by our commitment to people, innovative developments, and support for the local economy. Over the past two decades, we’ve managed to become stakeholders in some of the most promising local startups while playing a role in achieving sustainable growth for our stakeholders
DIF began in 2001 as an idea by thought leaders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) who shared the common determination to explore sustainable solutions beyond the conventional hydrocarbon industry in the MENA region. Our founders believed in the importance of innovative solutions and long-term planning to create a better tomorrow for future generations. By having an understanding of future challenges and planning for acting risks, DIF continues to follow its belief in its management today.
