Asset management and private equity roles are more challenging than ever.
An age of increasingly stringent regulations and complex, constantly evolving markets are making roles within the world of asset management and private equity more challenging than ever.
Nowhere is this more true than in the Middle East…
Which has traditionally been daunting, albeit rewarding prospect for industry players of all sizes. Several trends are driving these huge increases in assets under management, including a rise in government-incentivised retirement plans, a rising number of Arabian Gulf and Middle East-based high and ultra-high-net-worth individuals and the growth and rise of extremely active sovereign wealth funds.

Success depends on outshining competitors.
