In 2005, the Arab Jordan Investment Bank acquired a 55% stake in the Group, marking the first time an investment bank in the MENA region acquired a majority share of a research company. Hakam Kanafani bought 40% stake in Arab Advisors Group from Arab Jordan Investment Bank in 2016 to make the shareholding 45% for Jawad Abbassi, 40% Hakam Kanafani and 15% Abbassi family..
