About Nedbank Private Wealth in Dubai

From our representative office in the UAE, we offer wealth management services to clients across a wide geographical spread. Our clients range across nationalities and professions, and we are particularly well placed to support British expatriates located in the Middle East.


We can assist with the day-to-day management of your wealth in highly-regarded jurisdictions such as the Isle of Man and Jersey. Accounts are offered in all major currencies, including UAE Dirhams, and our flexible foreign exchange services are ideal for those with a busy international lifestyle. In addition, we can assist with mortgages and borrowing services for your UK property needs.


We are also one of the few wealth managers that operates its own trust company and can offer a range of wealth structuring options in-house.


Accounts can be opened in any of our offices in the UK, the Isle of Man or Jersey.
