Jordan-based Sigma Investments Joins Global Alliance Partners

Hong Kong, Oct 21, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) -
Sigma Investments Limited (Sigma,www.sigmaltd.org) based in Amman, Jordan and the sole agent of INGOT Brokers in the Middle East, today announced that it has become a member of Global Alliance Partners (GAP, http://www.globalalliancepartners.com/gapartner/index.action), an international network of investment banks, fund management firms and broking companies working across the capital midmarket in five continents.

INGOT provides financial services to investors in the region interested in the international financial markets and encompasses a wide range of clients from all over the world ranging from sophisticated money managers to individual investors trading mini accounts.

Sigma's CEO, Ms. Iman Mutlaq said, "We are delighted to announce our partnership with GAP, which will give our company the boost to deal with diverse expertise on large transactions and varied product ranges that have substantial international coverage."

"Together we will contribute in developing investments and resources for today's commerce", she added.

Mr. Mark Tunmer, Group CEO of Africa's Imara and current Chairman of GAP, is delighted to welcome the first female entrepreneurial partner in the Alliance. "While it may seem that the Middle East is taking its time away from the spotlight, the offshore boom in emerging and frontier markets particularly in Asia and Africa where investments could be sourced through GAP, extends our business opportunities beyond UAE through Sigma," he said.

Sigma Investments will be formally welcomed into GAP on 2 December 2013 when all Heads of Partner Firms meet in Dubai for its Year-end Principals Meeting.
