3 reasons to pair your business with Holborn

  • Registered and Regulated

    Holborn Employee Benefits is registered with the UAE Insurance Authority (IA). We have satisfied rigorous criteria relating to governance and financial conditions, and are therefore fully licensed to operate in a highly regulated market.

  • We share your experience

    We have done it ourselves. As a team of expatriates having spent two decades building our own business in the UAE, we know what it is like to operate in a complex market away from home. Let us share that hard-won expertise with you, and help navigate the pitfalls and stumbling blocks the easy way.

  • We are in it for the long haul

    As a family company that started from scratch almost two decades ago, we are committed to the market and to our clients for the long term. In an area where short termism and personnel changes are all too common, we think that makes us unique.

History and Heritage

Holborn Assets was established in 1998 and is widely considered to be the financial services company of choice in the expatriate market it serves. No other independent company can match our expertise or depth of proposition. We have therefore always felt at home headquartered in Dubai, the world’s fastest growing City State and one of the economic wonders of the world.

Holborn Assets has regulated operations in the UK, Europe, Asia and South Africa and a global administration hub employing 150 people in Sri Lanka. The corporate DNA that has underpinned our growth is simple: we are passionate about helping people put the right money, in the right place, at the right time.

We are a friendly, family company with British values of integrity and respect for all.

Don't just take our word for it

I have to admit I was a little …

“I have to admit I was a little skeptical when someone called me out of the blue to offer these services. However, from my very first conversation with Ian Leigh he put my mind at rest. The process was quite long because of pension regulations in the UK, but I understood that this would be the case as it was explained to me that this would probably happen. My husband and I met with Ian in our home and reviewed our options, there was absolutely no hard sell. I was an IFA in the UK so had a good understanding of our pensions and Ian was able to provide advice and help on overseas pension options. Would I recommend Ian and Holborn Assets to my friends, most definitely. Thanks for everything you have done to help us in this complicated world of pensions your service was excellent.”

Extremely happy and satisfied.

“From the first contact, we were treated with respect and curtesy. Our contact, Ian Leigh had a wealth of knowledge and walked is through everything in detail and in layman' terms. Ian was fast at responding to our queries and ensured things were chased up with his other colleagues at the same speed. We are glad that our contact was Ian and we would recommend both him and the Company to anyone else.”
