Heptagon Capital expands team to develop private client business

RELATED TOPICS​

Heptagon Capital, the USD8.6bn asset manager, has hired industry veteran Rajaa Mekouar to strengthen its delivery capability among family offices and ultra high net worth individuals.

Mekouar has over 15 years of international professional experience, including six years as a principal at Lazard European Private Equity Partners and Change Capital Partners, followed by six years as a founding director of Maera Capital, a family office-focused advisory and co-investment boutique.
 
Prior to that, Mekouar worked at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, and started her career at Procter & Gamble.
 
Managing partner Tarek Mooro says: “Heptagon managed to significantly expand our investment products and capabilities during the last nine years, and are therefore able to cater to the needs of a wide range of institutional and private clients keen on tailor-made investment solutions. We feel the time is right to make a bigger push into the private client market, which requires such customisation. We are confident that Rajaa, who we have known for several years, is ideally equipped to help expand Heptagon’s private client business, given her strong international relationships and professional experience advising family offices on a wide range of investments.”
 
Heptagon Capital was founded in 2005 by three Morgan Stanley senior executives: Eran Ben-Zour, Mooro and Fredrik Plyhr.
 
Headquartered in London, the firm has a 25-strong professional team.
