During 2018, Dubai Investments continued to build on its leadership in the property sector. Dubai Investments Park (DIP) continued to generate sustainable income for the Company with an increase in rental income achieved from revisions in lease rates and lease of additional land. Dubai Investments Real Estate Company focused on Mirdif Hills, a mixed-use freehold development that comprises residential apartments, a hotel, service apartments, a hospital, and retail facilities, while Al Taif Investment is progressing well with the construction of Fujairah Business Center.

In the building materials sector, the Group focused on clustering its subsidiaries into one platform, offering a one-stop shop with a diverse and comprehensive range of products and services.

Dubai Investments continued its focus in Education and Healthcare sectors with MODUL University Dubai hosting its first graduation ceremony, while the University of Balamand Dubai welcomed students to campus in Dubai Investments Park for its first academic year in September 2018. The Group also acquired a significant stake in Africa Crest Education Holding which is targeting development of SABIS curriculum schools across Africa. 

In the healthcare sector, King's College Hospital Dubai, in which the Group holds a 26.75% stake, opened a 100-bed, multi-specialty hospital in Dubai Hills Q1, 2019. The Group also grew its healthcare portfolio through a 20% stake in Clemenceau Medical Centre which is due to open its facilities in Dubai Healthcare City in the second half of 2019.

In financial investments, Al Mal is in the process of establishing a mixed-use Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) which will be listed on the financial market during Q2 2019. Dubai Investments is also finalizing the launch of a DIFC-based wholesale Islamic Bank licensed from the Dubai Financial Services Authority.

The Bank will offer a fully integrated range of competitive, Shari'a-compliant banking services and investment products with the core business lines of treasury, corporate banking, investment banking, and asset management.
