Information about the Dubai office:

In 2018 Fiduchi took the decision to increase its commitment to the Middle East region by opening a representative office in Dubai to better serve our clients in the GCC and wider Middle East region. Fiduchi's DMCC Branch office was established in early 2019 and headed up by Christopher Dungan - Regional Director Middle East before also being joined by one of Fiduchi's founding  directors Darren Hocquard in early 2020.

Key to the region is its Islamic heritage, and Fiduchi are well placed to help clients who wish to implement Sharia-compliant solutions. There is no one-size-fits-all Islamic structuring solution: as such, Fiduchi’s independence and flexibility put us in good stead for establishing and administering Sharia-compliant structures for Islamic financial institutions, as well as corporates and families.
