Since 2004, Capital Concept has been leading shareholder activism, advancing the need for Corporate Governance (CG) and advising companies and regulators in the Middle East and North Africa region on CG. Through its alliance with leading international organizations such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Global Corporate Governance Forum (GCGF) and the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) as well as through close relationships with regional central banks and capital market regulators, Capital Concept assists clients in implementing best in class CG standards.

In April 2013, Capital Concept’s Governance & Integrity Rating (GIR) became the first CG rating and advisory firm recognized by Lebanon’s Central Bank, Banque Du Liban (BDL), to review and rate the banking sector in Lebanon and the MENA region. Following on from the recommendation of BDL to assist the Lebanese banking sector in adopting best in class CG principles, Capital Concept is now committing to work with banks in Lebanon to improve governance of the banking sector.

Capital Concept CG ratings are of unsurpassed rigor, objectivity, accuracy, transparency and timeliness – ratings that provide solid assurance for both investors and companies.  With rich, in-depth information, Capital Concept ratings also provide shareholders, investors and financial institutions with stakeholder insight that they can turn into competitive advantage.  

With its integrity, objectivity and innovation, and with the support of regulators across the region, Capital Concept’s goal is to be the primary destination for investors, shareholders and other stakeholders to have access to the insight which enables them to better assess corporate governance practices and thus strengthen their ability to make sound business and investment decisions.  Our Governance & Integrity Rating (GIR) score can help safeguard the Lebanese economy and ensure that institutional investors, media and shareholders have the right and necessary information needed to make more sound and informed investment decisions.  Our GIR is a critical point of reference for shareholders when making the right vote during their Assembly General Meetings and Board meetings.

We also provide companies with a full range of CG advisory services such as assessments and peer reviews, advisory services to shareholders, board evaluation and training, board placement as well as remuneration and nomination services. In addition, we also advise institutional and retail investors in their   due diligence process prior to completion of an investment in a company .

Our clients include but are not limited to large corporations, small and medium enterprises, Family-Owned enterprises (FOE) and State Owned Enterprises (SOE). 
The Capital Concept team has worked with some of the largest companies across sectors in the MENA region such as the Union of Arab Banks, the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Al Qudra Holding, National Bank of Abu Dhabi and Allianz International. Capital Concept also played a key role in drafting CG codes for regulators and central banks in Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. Our team blends expertise in global and regional investment processes with working knowledge of the local culture, standards and business practices.
