Managing Director & CEO's Message
ARTIC's considerable success can be attributed to several key factors, including being owned by a well-established company as Al Faisal Holding, ARTIC's place and role in Qatar's growing economy, and its ability to capture investment opportunities while adopting a long-term investment approach. All of these factors have helped to make ARTIC one of the world's leading hospitality companies.
Our strategic investment approach is aligned with our long-term goals. At ARTIC, we consider ourselves buyers, not sellers - buying assets to hold them, to reposition them if necessary, to keep investing in them, and to increase their operational efficiency so they can perform even better.
We have a very thorough evaluation process when assessing potential investments but at the same time we are quick decision-makers, able to seize the right opportunity when it arises.
In addition to our hotel portfolio, we have a number of other key investments that are in line with and add value to our investment portfolio, such as retail complexes and hospitality-related services.
We see significant opportunities for the profitable expansion of our local and international hospitality and property portfolio. Indeed, ARTIC’s significant recent growth and strong project development pipeline mean that a public listing of ARTIC on one of the leading stock exchanges is the logical next step.
We look forward with confidence to building on what we have already achieved and, alongside our partners, to further expanding ARTIC's investment portfolio.
