FEP Capital is considered one of the leading companies in the field of financial services. The company was established in 1995 under the name White House Securities Services.
From its formation in 1995 until 2007, the company relied on the establishment of companies and the promotion of securities, benefiting from the state of the Egyptian market at the time.
After the outbreak of the global financial crisis in 2008, the company began to rely more on promotion and coverage of IPOs, in an attempt to cope with the post-crisis conditions of the market. During the four following years, the company managed to promote a large number of successful IPOs in the Nile Stock Exchange for small and medium enterprises, making itself a leader in the field.
