Our Journey 2022

"

Throughout 2022, we continued to cement ADQ’s footprint across key sectors of the diversifying economy. In addition to more acquisitions beyond the borders of the nation, we marked our first listing and the monetization of a stake in a key asset as three additional companies were transferred into our portfolio.”
