Over the past 35 years we have successfully built various financial companies, which directly play a role in the building of growth companies.
We have worked with companies in their start-up phase or existing growing businesses.
We have helped funding growth companies through accessing the various financial debt or equity tools, or negotiating and implementing alliances, as well as taking our clients through necessary Mergers, Acquisitions or phase-outs when needed.
We prepare companies for listing on the different exchanges and even if they don’t list the governance reached makes them more bankable and investable, if that is best for their long-term plans.
With our diverse financial backgrounds; varying from corporate banking, capital markets and leasing, along with our international and local experience, we focus on servicing small and medium enterprises (SMEs), using our professional network to deliver to our clients a long-term relationship, acting as an “owners’ representative”.
Given that Delta's entrepreneurial journey commenced in 1994, with the rebirth of the Egyptian Capital Market. It was our vision to build financially strong institutions, hence partnered with numerous top-notch international names like American Express Bank and ABN AMRO Bank NV to deliver high business know-how at speed.
