Mirabaud Asset Management expands in Middle East


Mirabaud Asset Management has hired Majid Hassan as head of business development activities for the Middle East.

Hassan will promote Mirabaud’s asset management capabilities to a wide range of investors including sovereign wealth funds, banks, pension funds and family offices in the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries.
He will be based in Mirabaud’s Dubai office where around 20 private bankers under the leadership of Olivier Honsberger, the local CEO, have operated since 2007.
Hassan began his career within the HSBC Group in Dubai and over the past 17 years has held various functions within large international groups such as AIG Investments and Standard Chartered, promoting long only and alternative investments to Middle Eastern investors based in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia.
Hassan also worked for domestic companies such as SHUAA Asset Management and Prestans Capital.
Bertrand Bricheux, head of sales and marketing for Mirabaud Asset Management, says: "We are very pleased to have a dedicated specialist for the Middle East like Majid on our team, particularly given the strategic importance of the region. Our strong presence in Dubai with a fully-fledged operation demonstrates the long term commitment of the group towards the region and now that we have found the right individual to open doors for us and promote our capabilities, we are very confident about our long term business development perspectives.”
Hassan says: "I am delighted to join Mirabaud Asset Management and lead the firm's business development effort in the MENA region. Mirabaud Asset Management is well-established, with global capabilities in key growth markets and innovative investment solutions. I look forward to expanding its presence in the Middle East, and developing as well as strengthening the firm's relationships with regional investors.”
