Our Approach


Our approach was founded on the philosophy of meaningfully engaging with our clients and questioning the norm. We prefer to originate, structure and execute opportunities within the group and in the spirit of traditional merchant banking firms, WMG invests as principle alongside its clients.


“We are driven by the guiding principles of listening to our clients’ needs and challenging the status quo”

Mehmet Dalman - Founder and Chairman




WMG was founded in 2004 by Mehmet Dalman and a number of other senior ex-investment bankers as a privately held company, with activities in Asia, the Gulf and the United Kingdom. It has since evolved from a ‘wealth management group’  into a multifaceted business, being a combination of a family office, corporate advisory firm, fund manager and alternative investment specialist.

WMG’s advisory services bring decades of experience to adverse and often non-conventional corporate finance situations. We specialise in hard assets and our primary focus is in real estate, where we have a strong UK based investment advisory team and in-house development expertise.

We have experience managing and restructuring complex investments in Europe and Asia. We also manage our own in-house funds across Credit, Equities and Alternatives such as Photography and Real Estate.

At WMG, our business model allows our investors to determine not only the individual investments they make, but also their on-going level of involvement. We have seen significant increase in demand from companies for flexible capital that brings more than just its financial rewards.

We have also recognised the opportunity and acknowledged the need to service the growing appetite amongst Family Offices, HNWI’s and Entrepreneurs to gain more exposure to alternative investments.
