Press Release, 2019/08/12
We are pleased to announce the opening of Walton’s first Middle East office in July 2019 to support our distribution partners and rapidly growing investor base throughout the GCC region. The new office is located in Dubai, the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates and the economic and financial hub of the Middle East.
RAPID GROWTH IN THE REGION FORGING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW OFFICE
Walton has been deeply rooted in the Asian market since the 1990’s and with increasing business activity and investors’ appetite for North American real estate-based opportunities in the GCC region, Walton has now established our first office in the Middle East to provide better local support to our clients and partners in business.
The new office is located on the 27th floor of Marina Plaza in Dubai, a prestigious location in the heart of the Dubai Marina district. Tim Haywood, Regional Vice President of Walton International Group, has relocated to Dubai to manage the office. With over 20 years in financial services including the last 13 years with Walton, Tim brings his in-depth knowledge of the business and our latest real estate opportunities to the GCC region.

The establishment of our Dubai office comes at an exciting time for Walton, and will allow us to better serve our growing business partner network and valued clients throughout the GCC region, and beyond. We look forward to expanding our presence with new innovative products, and on a personal note, settling into to Dubai life with my wife and two children.”
