The company opened its Dubai office in Emaar Square last year and said it now wants to introduce what it claims is the first UK-type network model into the territory.
AES said advisers which join its network will benefit from full transparency regarding gross commissions, will have guaranteed ownership of their client banks, an exit strategy and the freedom to build their business with a “tried and trusted framework for treating customers fairly”.
“AES is passionate about exporting best practice and improving both client and adviser outcomes,” said AES chief executive Sam Instone.
“Introducing a UK style proposition into the Middle East gives advisers the choice of the best of both worlds – the independence and flexibility to build their own respective businesses within a larger transparent and professional financial services organisation. IFAs can choose how best to leverage these businesses upon our human, intellectual, technological, marketing and financial resources – giving financial and career security.”
