“Our asset management business delivered a resilient performance during the quarter, and we are pleased to be acquiring International Tower, [an] office building, further strengthening the portfolio.

“Aldar continues to assess the market for other attractive acquisition opportunities in line with our commitment to drive growth of long-term recurring revenues,” he added.
