The bank has significant growth ambitions across both the UK and the Middle East, and I look forward to working with Khaled to progress these goals and solidify BLME’s reputation as the go-to bank for GCC clients. He will work closely with BLME Capital, our recently launched subsidiary in Saudi Arabia, reaching new markets and unlocking investment opportunities for our GCC clients.”

Khaled Alanani, Head of Alternative Investment said:

“I am really looking forward to returning to BLME. It’s a hugely exciting time to be rejoining and to be working with such a talented group of people. GCC investors are increasingly seeking innovative and sophisticated investment opportunities and this is a golden opportunity to bring BLME’s expertise to new markets and capitalise on our exceptional track record”
