GFH Capital placement of prime central London property oversubscribed

GFH Capital, a fully owned subsidiary of Bahrain-based Gulf Finance House, announced the successful placement with GCC investors of its newly acquired prime central London residential property.
The placement was oversubscribed by investors seeking attractive opportunities in the UK real estate market. The luxury property, which is located in Kensington, is a five unit Grade II listed building overlooking the Queens Gate Gardens.
Hisham Al-Rayes, MD, GFH Capital, said: "We're extremely pleased to announce the successful placement of our recently acquired prime central London property with our Gulf-based investors. There is strong demand for this type of property and opportunities in central London real estate. This is no better demonstrated than through the quick uptake and oversubscription of this offering to investors looking for good returns.
Jinesh Patel, senior executive officer at GFH Capital, stated: “This is an attractive investment and one that, we believe, will deliver above average capital appreciation over the medium term for the bank and our investors. We are continuing to assess other similar opportunities in the UK and US real estate markets where we see value and upside potential."
GFH Capital announced the acquisition of its Queens Gate Gardens property in early January 2014.

Talga hosts event to raise awareness on SDG 3.4

The Association for Sustainable Development (Talga) in partnership with the Saudi Scouts Association represented by the Messengers of Peace Commission, hosted an initiative called “I Want to Say Something,” which aimed at promoting effective practices that treat and prevent mental health problems among children.

Studies show that being a member of the scouts or guides during childhood is linked to a lower risk of mental illness.

The initiative seeks to encourage children to develop values embraced by scouts such as community involvement, teamwork, bio-empathy, love for learning and emotional intelligence. 

The event was hosted outdoors where workshops were conducted in tents and children enjoyed an authentic scouting ambience. 

The workshops focused on raising awareness on mental health and teaching positive skills that are essential for children through arts and a creative approach. Other activities included basic scouting skills like knot tying, celestial navigation as well as outdoor yoga and meditation. 

In addition, the initiative aimed to contribute to sustainable development goal (SDG) target 3.4, which focuses on raising awareness on mental health and reducing its risks by 2030, which is essential to raising generations that are positively engaged in their communities and societies.
