  • Comes off the back off Lumina’s recent UK, London office opening and appointment of Guy Warrington, a 36-year City Veteran as Senior Adviser

Lumina Capital Advisers, a leading corporate finance advisory firm, has been appointed by the UK government’s Department for Business and Trade (DBT) as a registered provider to the DBT’s overseas referral network for the Middle East.

Lumina’s role is to support UK companies seeking to engage in the Middle East, particularly in sectors such as healthcare, renewable energy, technology, and sustainable infrastructure development. This latest announcement comes amidst significant advancements in the region, such as Saudi Arabia’s ambitious US$900bn infrastructure and smart city investment plan, where UK companies’ specialist skills are in high demand.

“The appointment reflects our deep expertise and strong presence in the Middle East and the UK. We are excited to bring our wealth of experience to bear in supporting UK businesses navigating the region’s dynamic markets.” said George Traub, Managing Partner of Lumina.

The year has seen a global focus on sustainability, with the UAE declaring it the ‘Year of Sustainability’ and playing host to the pivotal COP28 conference. The appointment of Lumina further aligns with these global sustainability efforts, as they facilitate UK-Middle East collaborations in renewable energy and sustainable infrastructure.

The Lumina team, with a combined experience of over 100 years in the Middle East and UK markets, connects capital and transactions between the regions. The firm appointed Guy Warrington, a 36-year City of London veteran as Senior Adviser to further boost its capabilities in the UK.recently awarded for his exceptional contribution to British business in the Middle East, added: “Our role now extends to providing high-level regional access to both private and governmental organisations, enabling key transactions and projects for our clients in both regions.”

In parallel, Lumina continues to work closely with Middle Eastern family conglomerates on outbound expansion opportunities into the UK, a recent example being as lead adviser to DULSCO, a UAE family conglomerate, on its acquisition of UK-based energy manpower business AGR Limited, fostering another successful international collaboration between the Middle East and the UK.
