Transparent, resilient, proven, and guided by Shari’ah principles, Arcapita has always been committed to creating an impactful tomorrow for our stakeholders.

Arcapita was founded in Bahrain in 1997 by a group of esteemed businessmen from the GCC region. Their mission was to offer Shari’ah-compliant investments to investors across the Gulf and Asia. Arcapita has since grown into a thriving global firm that serves as a pioneering and trusted leader that implements high level solutions to private equity and real estate investments.

In 1998, Arcapita opened its Atlanta office in the United States and has since launched offices in the United Kingdom, Singapore, and Saudi Arabia. The firm’s core values are the foundation for everything we do and the reason they attract world-class talent who thrive as global Shari’ah asset managers in all market conditions.
