Soling Partners help you navigate the new Middle East


We are Middle East business development specialists.

The Middle East is undergoing rapid change. Old economic models based on oil have been replaced by new strategies of economic diversification and heavy investment in technology, real assets, infrastructure, healthcare, and education.

Middle East principals are therefore looking for global partners with whom they can invest to accelerate their transition into the future economy.

However, the Middle East can be difficult to navigate. There are many cultural subtleties and policies, people, and priorities can change quickly.

But it is our world – and one that we know well. We have more than 40 years of combined experience in the Middle East and use that to guide our clients on being effective and efficient across the region.

Our clients are asset managers and corporates interested in building long-term regional partnerships.

Vision 2030 requires the Kingdom to reduce and eventually eliminate dependence on oil and what greater indicator of that dependence than state spending which correlates positively with the oil price? So, have they changed?

Saudi’s regional relationships

Saudi’s regional relationships

The geopolitical philosophy of Saudi Arabia in 2021 can perhaps best be described as one of quieter assertiveness. The days of robust interventionism, bellicose rhetoric and reckless adventurism, are over. But so, too, are the days of timidity, sloth, and opaque insular quiescence.
