This team invests in private equity and venture capital firms based in the Middle East and North Africa. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a high-calibre team of investment professionals with backgrounds from a range of blue-chip institutions. Due to the nature of this team, you will enjoy a relatively high degree of responsibility from the outset.
