With this expansion, Castle Hall has further broadened its global presence: the firm also has offices in Montreal and Halifax, Canada; Zurich, Switzerland; and Sydney, Australia.
The Abu Dhabi office is led by Managing Director and Partner, Anne Coady, CPA, CA, FICA. Ms. Coady has more than two decades of accounting, operational and due diligence experience. Since joining Castle Hall in 2007, Ms. Coady has been responsible for the service delivery of more than 2,000 due diligence reviews, leading the firm’s team of due diligence analysts. Ms. Coady has extensive experience managing due diligence engagements across hedge funds; private equity, infrastructure and real estate funds; and a wide range of long only investment structures.
“Expanding into Abu Dhabi represents an extraordinary opportunity for Castle Hall” said Ms. Coady. “For the last few years we have engaged with a rapidly expanding client base in the GCC and broader MENA region, and our Abu Dhabi office enables us to deepen our relationships with these clients and tailor our services to their specific and evolving needs. There is an increasing interest in our operational due diligence expertise throughout the Middle East and Africa and establishing a strong presence in Abu Dhabi also allows us to broaden our investor client base.”
“This strategic expansion into Abu Dhabi supports Castle Hall’s bedrock commitment to providing personal and timely service to our investor clients around the world. We’re very excited about the opportunities for developing enduring new relationships in the region.”
