About us

Welcome to AGBI – Arabian Gulf Business Insight

We are a new business news platform serving the Mena region. We break important stories, provide authoritative analysis and facilitate interaction and commercial collaboration. Because we believe that better-informed leaders make better decisions – which leads to better outcomes for their customers, their companies and ultimately for their countries. 

While our product is new, our leadership team brings a wealth of experience to the table, with former senior executives from regional publishers including Arabian Business and Gulf Business plus international publishers including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal.

Our mission is to become an essential tool for ambitious entrepreneurs and established business leaders alike, helping them identify the region’s key commercial opportunities and challenges – to showcase innovation and make mutually beneficial connections.

In technology-accelerated markets where content can be created in an instant, we’ll seek to deliver insight rather than simply present information, to foster understanding rather than contribute to the cacophony, to provide the focus that highlights key developments and changes that will shape the future.

Headquartered in London and with a newsroom in Dubai, we are a team of dedicated journalists whose collective vision is to build a next-generation business news resource that delivers insightful analysis at the intersection of regional economies and global markets.

Our Values

Our specialist experience and diverse knowledge directly inform the way we work – everything we do is supported by high levels of professionalism, deep insight and commitment to exemplary editorial standards.

We are not afraid to ask the big questions and challenge convention in ways that are both respectful and insightful in order to deliver compelling content that adds real value.

Everything we create is underpinned by our desire for fairness, accuracy and honesty – free of bias and designed to create an open, reassuring and intuitive experience for readers. 

Enthusiasm and energy underpin everything we do – from engaging content to razor-sharp opinion, we’ll seek to be an inspiring partner for Gulf businesses.

We’ll create serious yet highly accessible content that brings information to life to meet both operational and strategic needs, stimulating discussions and promoting opportunity.

We see the big picture and our imagination, inquisitive nature and appetite for change motivate us to constantly search for ideas that will help connect countries through content.
