ABOUT US

Al Emarat United, AES, is a privately-owned business. Our Board has decades of experience in multiple sectors and a wealth of contacts, primarily in Europe and the Middle East. We manage a portfolio of businesses across the region focusing primarily on education, arts and culture, as well as, creating meaningful partnerships internationally.

Al Emarat United, previously known as Portsmouth Limited, was established with a stronger focus to fostering its presence in the UAE and the UK to the advantage of its partners. The company is a descendant of a long-established trading business owned by an eminent, Abu Dhabi-based, merchant family.

Our Founder and Chairman, Dr. Hamed Bin Mohammed Al Suwaidi, has a mission to combine his passion for education, business and cultural exchange under one umbrella. The company’s name itself reflects his beliefs in the strength of the family’s trading roots. AL EMARAT UNITED aims to uphold and preserves traditional values in all its activities.

"Our aim is to foster and grow our business in Abu Dhabi and the UAE with true global partners through transactions based soundly on integrity, understanding and professionalism"
