Chairman of Dubai based DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani, through his private investment company, Vision Investments, has bought the Italian fashion group Roberto Cavalli SpA.

I am happy to announce that the transaction was executed swiftly and that we will ensure stability in management.

"At DICO Investments, we aspire to own internationally recognized brands, and this acquisition marks a significant step in our strategy."

Established in 1992, the DICO Group is the multi-billion-dollar investment arm of Hussain Sajwani with diverse interests in markets around the world. The company's investments are divided into five core areas; namely, Capital markets, Real Estate, Hotels & Resorts, Manufacturing and Catering and now luxury fashion.

Some of DICO Investment's most notable activities include the 50 storey DAMAC Towers Nine Elms in London, a luxury resort in the Maldives, shopping malls in Iraq, and the Mina Al Sultan Qaboos Waterfront real estate project in Oman, among others. The investment company plans to deploy approximately $3 billion over the next few years in key markets across Western Europe and the US.
