About us

Welcome to AGBI – Arabian Gulf Business Insight

We are a full-spectrum business news platform for the Mena region and beyond, serving an influential audience of market makers and decision takers. We break important stories, provide authoritative opinion and analysis, and facilitate commercial collaboration.

The AGBI team brings a wealth of experience, comprised of former senior executives from international titles including The Times, The Telegraph, the Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal, as well as regional publishers such as Arabian Business and The National.

Our mission is to become an essential tool for ambitious business people and established leaders alike, helping them identify the region’s key commercial opportunities and challenges. In technology-accelerated markets where content is created in an instant, we stand apart to deliver insight rather than simply present information, and to provide the focus that informs good business decisions.

Headquartered in London and with a newsroom in Dubai, we are a team of dedicated journalists providing up-to-the-minute business news and insightful analysis at the intersection of regional economies and global markets.

Welcome to AGBI.
