AMP Capital, an investment manager headquartered in Australia, has launched a new representative office in Dubai.
The firm also appointed Sudhanshu Garg as its new institutional director. He will introduce the firm’s real assets capabilities to Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) clients.
In a financial career spanning over two decades, Garg served in senior management positions at ABN Amro in Dubai and as a senior vice president at Royal Bank of Scotland.
He most recently managed a consultancy business in Dubai, where he offered advice on investment product development, product structuring and external relationship management.
AMP Capital North West region director Boe Pahari said: “As AMP Capital continues its global expansion strategy, it makes sense to have an on-the-ground presence in Dubai, which is the gateway to the Middle East and a potential high-growth market for us.
“AMP Capital has built strong relationships with clients in the GCC over many years and the appointment of Sudhanshu, with his strong financial services experience and excellent local networks, provides us the opportunity to further cement our presence in this important and fast-growing region.”
