Aldar Estates, the property and facilities management arm of Aldar Properties, has acquired FAB Properties, the property management services unit of First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB).

The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals. 

Established in 2011, FAB Properties offers end-to-end real-estate solutions, including marketing, leasing, facility management and financial reporting.
