Electio are leaders in Alternative Investment offerings with a focus on commodities, having being the first firm in Africa to offer Technology Metals as an investment to private individuals.
“What makes Electio different to other investment firms is that we have a dedicated team of experienced researchers who continuously investigate new and innovative alternative investment opportunities and we are first in the market to bring these opportunities to discerning private individuals, who otherwise would not have had access to them before”, said Electio Director.
“The Gulf region has progressively been seen as safe-haven for savvy investors wanting to benefit from the zero taxation of income and capital gains that countries like Dubai offer”, continued Mcgregor. “The ongoing political and economic stability of the UAE is likely to continue to bring longer term benefits for the Dubai investment market, with many high-net-worth investors moving their money to Dubai as a consequence of the Arab Spring”.
“Our clients commodity investments’ storage facility is also located in Dubai, so the logical evolution was to have representation in the Middle East. This also allows us to better service our Middle Eastern clients that we have brought on board in South Africa, with Dubai and Qatar being perfectly suited to our investment strategy for this region” added Mcgregor. “Above all, the number one benefit we are now able to offer our clients is global liquidity, and the ability to trade in different currencies”.

As one of the fastest growing alternative asset management firms globally, Electio is also considering expanding it’s offering to Saudi Arabia and Singapore in the near future.
