“Abyan Capital was founded with the vision to simplify personal investment for everyone in Saudi Arabia, regardless of their financial literacy levels,”

said Abdullah Aljeraiwi, CEO and co-founder of Abyan Capital.

“The idea of Abyan began as an effort to disrupt the asset management industry in the Kingdom for individuals, which is one of the objectives of the Financial Sector Development Programme. Today, we are proud that in a very short amount of time, Abyan has exceeded deposits of over 1.4 billion Saudi Riyals and invested more than 100,000 portfolios. And we will be launching new, diversified products soon with the goal of making Abyan the digital retail investment house.”
