AHR Private Wealth, a Dubai-based financial planning house, has ventured into the consulting realm with the launch of AHR Corporate Advisory Services. 

Formed via the merger between Arlo Wealth and Harrison Rowe in the summer of 2020, AHR Private Wealth is a global boutique wealth management specialist. The firm helps wealthy individuals and small to mid-sized businesses with financial planning, taxation and investments. 

Extending its service portfolio for businesses, the new AHR Corporate Advisory Services division will offer a range of advisory services to small and mid-sized enterprises in the United Arab Emirates.

Expanding on the firm’s expansion, CEO Daniel Dickinson said: “Following a careful planning process and review of our service offerings, we have launched what we feel shall become an integral element in the next phase of development for AHR and provide true added value to our clients both current and future.”

“We feel the time is right to combine our distinctive private wealth offering with a range of corporate business advisory solutions.” 

The new wing will be led by an experienced ex-Big Four duo: Steve Drake, a former senior partner of PwC Advisory; and Stephen Watson, a former Executive Director at EY and KPMG alumnus. “It is with real pride that we announce Steve and Stephen as co-Managing Partners of our Corporate Advisory Service business,” commented Dickinson. 

“We believe the SME sector is generally underserved in the UAE. The Corporate Advisory Services practice will enable our clients to have access to top-tier advisory capability at price points that work for SME’s. We are genuinely excited to be joining AHR, a distinctive, disruptive, progressive business that has experienced rapid growth over recent years,” said Drake and Watson in a joint statement.
