Guidance Financial Group Overview
Guidance Financial Group creates highly innovative and successful investment products on a global basis to meet the needs of institutional investors. We specialize in developing private equity, real estate, and fixed income investment products for these investors, as well as solutions for participants in the primary and secondary housing finance sectors.
In addition, we bring companies into being that provide housing finance and other financial services to underserved consumer populations in both developed and emerging markets. We build on an expertise developed in our two highly successful companies, a consumer finance business in the United States and a specialist housing finance provider in Saudi Arabia.
Our Guidance Investments subsidiary is charged with conceiving and realizing the novel investment products for institutional investors, collaborating with strategic partners when beneficial. We have originated a portfolio of nine private equity, real estate, and leasing funds, all of which have been approved and are monitored by our distinguished Shariah Supervisory Board. Our Capital Markets division enables companies in the Gulf Region to issue Islamic bonds that tap Asian and other demand for Middle East debt. We continue to expand our investment products on a global basis within our three targeted asset classes and develop new solutions to housing finance challenges in emerging markets.
Guidance is part of Capital Guidance, a private investment firm with nearly 50 years of global experience as a strategic investor in real estate and developing businesses and a manager of a diversified portfolio of marketable securities and private equity investments.
