DHF Capital Partners with AIN to Expand Global Footprint


Bas Kooijman’s admittance into the Forbes Council to further solidify DHF’s global presence

Dubai, UAE: DHF Capital S.A., a Luxembourg-based securitization company with an expanding footprint and offices in the UAE, and Angel Investors Network (AIN), a US-based platform for investors to find new investment opportunities, have joined forces; DHF Capital’s renowned fund management organization, DHF Asset Management S.A.R.L., will allow AIN’s investor audience to diversify their portfolios and hedge against current market volatility.

After launching in Europe in early 2020, DHF Capital entered the Middle East to accelerate its growth. With nearly 25% of the region’s wealth management clients looking to move their assets during the pandemic, DHF Capital set up shop in the UAE where 13% of residents rely on financial advisors. This trend continues increasing as Dubai’s population aims to alleviate concerns of the looming world recession, as well as rising inflation rates which spiked 5.2% in 2022 and are projected to climb an additional 3.6% this year.

Bas Kooijman, CEO and Asset Manager of DHF Capital S.A., commented: “Since inception, we have built a proven track record by providing an annual average ROI of 20% to investors. This has helped accelerate our growth with expansion from Europe to the Middle East, and now, America. With global inflation rising, our newfound collaboration will help to educate the masses about how they can achieve investing success to alleviate these concerns.”

Jeff Barnes, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AIN, added: “I’m delighted to introduce DHF Asset Management S.A R.L. to our investor audience as an opportunity to diversify their portfolio and hedge against current market volatility.”

DHF Capital’s partnership facilitates the prospect of a broader expansion in US markets, as the firm’s automatic portfolio rebalancing capabilities will be provided on a larger scale to help a new group of investors diversify their portfolios and mitigate their risk. In line with this milestone, Bas is garnering global attention as he was recently accepted into the Forbes Business Council, the foremost growth and networking organisation for successful business owners and leaders worldwide.

Bas was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience.
