(MENAFN - Arab Times) TASWEEK Real Estate Development and Marketing, an advisor and solutions provider serving the real estate markets, confirmed that it has achieved its third consecutive year of increased profitability for the year ended Dec 31, 2011 during its Annual General Assembly held yesterday (Wednesday, April 25, 2012) at the Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The company also revealed a rise in shareholders' equity and robust liquidity during the period.
During the General Assembly, TASWEEK management reported a 7 per cent profit hike over 2010 driven by a 29.8 per cent increase in investment income. This was partly offset by a decline in deposit income, as banks continued to uphold lower deposits rates in 2011.

Besides it successful investments, the company also approved and launched fresh investment initiatives centering on developments in the UAE and Morocco aimed at broadening its asset base and adding depth to its investment portfolio across various geographical segments.
Overall, TASWEEK has logged a cumulative equity growth of 10 per cent for its shareholders besides maintaining strong liquidity.
The primary objective of the company's capital management strategy is to secure a strong credit rating and healthy ratios to support the business and maximize shareholder value.
A highlight for TASWEEK in 2011 is the addition of multiple investments opportunities to its 250 million property portfolio that it has been building up since late 2009 to ensure consistent income streams and capital growth.
