“Abu Dhabi has always been a key market for ValuStrat – our decades of working with banks, corporates and royal offices in the capital has positioned us as one of the strongest professional service providers in the city and across the emirate. Our opening of an office in Al Bateen is testament to this relationship,” added Declan King, a Managing Director at ValuStrat.

Located at the heart of Abu Dhabi’s financial and business district (in Al Bateen Tower C6), the new office will facilitate “improved connectivity with clients” and “more efficient delivery of services,” said King.

Heading up the new hub is Sohail Raja, who specialises in valuations work within the real estate and property sectors. He previously worked in the property departments of both ADIB and FAB, and served as the head of the Abu Dhabi office of Cavendish Maxwell, a boutique consultancy focused on the property sector.

“Sohail’s credentials assures our clients we have deep local experience and market knowledge,” said King.

Commenting on his first weeks in the role, Raja remarked: “We’ve received terrific support and excitement from prospects and customers who have been trying to find a comprehensive suite of propositions locally and we hope to build and augment this in the future.”
