The two companies joined forces in 1996 to create EFG Hermes. For over two decades, EFG Hermes has been the leading financial services corporation in the Middle East and North Africa. Currently, the group has five lines of business under the investment bank platform as well as two subsidiaries under its recently launched non-banking financial services platform, EFG Hermes Finance.
