Mohamed Mughal

First Forte is a multi-disciplinary company offering professional services, consultancy advice and business solutions to clients in the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) region. Its clients include institutional asset managers, family offices, and ultra-high-net-worth individuals – and many of the relationships it has forged have lasted for decades. Trustworthiness and good corporate governance are paramount for the First Forte team, which focuses on introducing investment opportunities to GCC clients. First Forte has been successful in sourcing an independent deal-flow and in placing junior resource and medium-sized transactions in sectors including financial services, technology and real estate. First Forte’s principal, Mohamed Mughal, is a consummate professional with a prior career at JPMorgan. For the regional sovereigns, he remains the “go-to” business expert. With an international network of “extended family” across the globe, First Forte is in a prime position to introduce innovative investment opportunities to customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, and, of course, in the “home turf” of Dubai and Abu Dhabi – as well as the rest of the UAE. The firm has a strong track record, and the CFI.co judges recognise that during its long tenure, it has earned a reputation for having the clients’ interest at heart – as well as for creating value in an honest and transparent way. The judges had no hesitation in presenting First Forte with the 2019 award for Best Regional Business Development Services (UAE).
