Riyadh – Swicorp, a leading investment banking, asset management and private equity firm in partnership with M&A International, announced today that it will host the 16th M&A Mid-Market Forum (MMF) in Dubai at the Ritz Carlton Hotel on March 3rd 2016.
Swicorp is a member of M&A International, the world’s largest organization of independent M&A consultancies and investment banking firms. Forums organized under the umbrella of M&A International are very unique as they occur only twice a year in a different influential city at a time.

At the forum, M&A International Inc.’s member firms and their guests will explore and discuss strategic M&A objectives — all in one day, all in one location.
Announcing the MMF, Chairman of Swicorp, Kamel Lazaar, said he “is proud that such an exceptional gathering in M&A is taking place for the first time in Middle-East”.
Executive director of Swicorp’s Corporate Finance, Maheur Mourali, is “honored that Swicorp, the regional partner of M&A International, is facilitating MAI’s first forum to date in Dubai.”
