Corporate Finance & Advisory

Akkadia provides advisory services to financial and strategic investors looking to enter Iraq. We also help local companies to grow their business by bringing strategic partners and organising financing. We offer tailored solutions to our corporate clients. These consist of family groups and multinationals with an established presence in Iraq or are looking to enter the market. We help in identifying the asset, provide on-the-ground due diligence, valuation and execution services, as well as assist our clients in managing the assets following the acquisition.

Our on-the-ground presence and in-depth knowledge of Iraq have helped us build a strong institutional client base. These include some of the most prominent regional players. Our expertise has helped organisations in many sectors, including oil & gas, telecommunications, banking and the food industry. We offer a one-stop-shop solution. Our unmatched local access and intelligence allow us to provide our clients with a fully integrated financial package.

We are also active in capital markets with a particular focus on the Iraq Stock Exchange (ISX). We act as local advisor to the National Bank of Kuwait, the leading regional bank in their capital markets and corporate finance activities in Iraq. We also act for Zain Telecoms, the largest mobile operator in Iraq and a major player in Africa and the Middle East. We are Zain’s sole local advisor on its forthcoming IPO on the Iraq Stock Exchange which is expected to be one of the largest out of the region and a turning point for the Iraqi market.

Our corporate finance services fall under four main categories:

  • Capital Markets
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Financial and Strategic Advisory
  • Market Entry Assessment and Feasibility Studies
