Latitude Consultancy, the leading British firm in the investment migration industry, will merge with RIF Trust Investments LLC, the Dubai-based citizenship-by-investment leader in the GCC. The merger will expand Latitude’s international network to the ever-important Gulf region. It will combine RIF Trust’s leading sales force in Dubai with Latitude’s unrivaled experience in the Investment Migration industry. Latitude Group will be the name of the union.
Eric Major, Founding Partner and CEO of Latitude, comments: “We are proud to be the first firm in our growing industry to complete a merger and we expect to play a leading role in the months ahead in driving further consolidation in our industry. Beyond the market success witnessed by RIF Trust over the years, what excites me the most about this merger is the people we are bringing together.
“Like Latitude, RIF Trust has a great organizational culture driven by David and Mimoun’s positive “can-do” attitude. It is this corporate ethos that is going to make us very successful in the years to come.”
Mimoun Assraoui, CEO of RIF Trust, adds: “Since our inception over four years ago, our goal has been to work consistently and steadily towards creating the most successful firm in the industry, and now with this merger, we are well on our way to achieving that goal.”
“The depth and experience of Latitude’s senior management combined with our strong sales culture is sure to bring great results.”
David Regueiro, COO of RIF Trust, confirmed that both firms will continue to operate under their existing brands until the end of this year. “RIF Trust has been operating in the UAE for over four years.”
“We have developed a strong brand and market awareness, so we agreed to maintain the RIF name until we complete a rebranding at some point in the new year.”
