Sadu Capital is a venture capital firm that invests in private technology startups through equity ownership. Sadu’s latest fund currently focuses on investing in early-stage startups (pre-seed, seed and Series A) that are based in the Middle East & North Africa region (“MENA”).

The drive for economic diversification and state-backed initiatives continue to fuel the growth of Middle East’s venture capital industry. Despite a global economic slowdown, recent MAGNiTT data shows that MENA-based startups continued to significant interest from investors in the first half of 2023 as funding levels reached $1,075m across 193 deals in the MENA region.

Apex Group will support Sadu Capital’s Cayman domiciled fund with technology-enabled Fund Administration and AML Officer services. Fund Administration is at the core of Apex Group’s single-source solution, delivering timely, accurate and independent services, underpinned by market leading technology platforms.

In addition, Apex Group’s comprehensive AML services and outsourced officers coordinate proactive solutions to enable clients to understand and mitigate AML risks, as well as identifying early opportunities that arise from evolving regulation and new market trends.

This appointment, by a reputable VC firm such as Sadu, demonstrates the application of Apex Group’s single-source solution, delivering timely, accurate and independent services to meet client needs, streamline their vendor relationships and deliver time and cost economies. According to a Total Economic Impact (TEI) report by Forrester Consulting, clients of Apex Group’s single-source solution achieve, on average, cost benefits of $5.39m, with a net present value of $2.75m over a three-year period.

Salem Washeely, Managing Director, Sadu Capital adds: “As a leading venture capital firm in the MENA region, Sadu is pleased to appoint Apex Group to provide Fund Administration and AML solutions to our early-stage VC fund. Sadu, from its inception, planned to build an outstanding relationship with its investors and LPs including transparent reporting and seamless onboarding process among many other exceptional experiences. To achieve that, Sadu looked for a capable firm with global presence to rely on and Apex Group was the clear choice. Their single-source solution stood out for us, as it enables us to access all of the services we need across multiple jurisdictions, via one convenient relationship, therefore removing the complexity and inefficiency of multiple service provider relationships. We have been particularly impressed by the knowledge and responsiveness of Apex Group’s experienced local team.”

Naveed Zamir, Country Head, Dubai at Apex Group comments: “Global venture capital continues to be an attractive proposition for Middle East investors, with the local ecosystem going from strength to strength. We look forward to supporting Sadu Capital’s entrepreneurial team with our solutions which deliver significant operational, resource and cost efficiency, allowing them to focus on identifying and investing in, high growth businesses in the region.”
