Through this new venture, we are fostering a dynamic ecosystem of growth and innovation in the industrial and logistics sectors.


“KAMC is uniquely positioned to drive sustainable value and contribute significantly to the economic diversification of Abu Dhabi and the wider region.”


Mohamed Al Khader Al Ahmed, CEO of Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi – KEZAD Group, added: "The launch of KEZAD Assets Management Company marks a new era for KEZAD Group, aligning with our vision to be a world-class industrial and logistics hub.


“This strategic step enhances our competitive edge, provides unparalleled services to our clients, and further solidifies our role as a key driver of the region's industrial growth and prosperity in Abu Dhabi."


The company will leverage global networking, client and broker relationships, and risk management for effective operation. The structure of KAMC includes functions such as deal sourcing and management, leasing and property management oversight, joint ventures and limited partnerships, and risk management, leveraging the expertise within the existing units of ECand FZ / KEZAD Group for efficient operation.
