This piece addresses the issues of: (i) what exactly happened at Dubai private equity firm Abraaj and (ii) what lessons emerging economies, such as Dubai, might glean from the failure of Abraaj Holdings. To do so, this piece employs analytical tools of the Abraaj Holdings case study to search for the interactions between the UAE corporate governance and the failure of Abraaj Holdings. This piece focuses on (i) a renewed audit of corporate governance standards that may help to assess the inherent weaknesses of the continuation of the status quo in the UAE and generally in the GCC countries, and (ii) the importance of a robust corporate governance culture and practice in attracting international investors.
