Al Mal Capital PSC, a subsidiary of Dubai Investments PJSC and a diversified, multi-line investment institution headquartered in Dubai, has announced the acquisition of Poinsettia Plaza – the 153,000 square feet neighborhood shopping centre located in Ventura, California.

The transaction, executed through Al Mal Direct Investments, builds on the company’s investments in private companies and real estate assets in the region and beyond. The Poinsettia Plaza acquisition is the second investment for Al Mal Capital in US real estate.

As part of this, the Al Mal Direct Investments division is targeting investments around the globe focused on building long-term value, with its approach centering on proprietary deal flow, due diligence and aligning the company’s interests with partners and management teams.”

Naser added: “The Poinsettia Plaza project offered an attractive combination of income stability and growth potential. Al Mal Capital has partnered with a US-based real estate investment and management company with deep knowledge of the US market and a proven track record in executing and managing US real estate transactions.”
