Waha Capital, the Abu Dhabi based investment firm, is looking at acquisitions of up to $1 billion in the maritime, financial and leasing services sectors, according to the Wall Street Journal and Emirates Business.
"From the maritime side, we are interested in a regional player, financial services would be regional and leasing would be global," said Noaimi. He declined to elaborate.
Waha is also working on two structured finance deals for the UAE's armed forces, said Noaimi, declining to give further details. He said that the company's short-term funding was "fine".
