The Journey

The Journey

Established in 1998, Gatehouse Capital began operations in San Francisco, California. The company immediately positioned itself at the forefront of shariahcompliant investments by providing advisory services on investments in the global equity markets through a comprehensive shariah screening process.

Keen to protect client interests while maintaining the quality of its investment advisory services, Gatehouse Capital relocated to Kuwait in 2002 and was established as Global Securities House for Financial and Economic Consultancy LLC (GSH).

This expansion led to the development and introduction of the Shariah Ijarah French real estate structure. Unprecedented in France, many investment companies have since tried to emulate Gatehouse Capital’s real estate advisory blueprint. In 2004, the company turned its attention to the US and began advising on high quality, fully stabilised, income producing assets that offered favourable yields.

In 2008, Gatehouse Capital’s associate, Gatehouse Bank, received approval from the Financial Services Authority for a licence to act as a wholesale deposit-taking banking entity operating within the UK regulatory environment. Gatehouse Capital continued to develop innovative investment structures and opportunities alongside Gatehouse Bank by expanding further into the UK market. GSH was officially rebranded as Gatehouse Capital in 2013.
