Job description

Charterhouse are currently sourcing a Chief Investment Officer (CIO) for a leading UAE holding and investment group. This newly created position will be an exciting role for a leading and senior investment professional whom is looking for a hands-on, proactive and autonomous mandate and business environment.

About the role
As the investment lead, the CIO will take overall responsibility for the implementation and execution of the group investment strategy, aligned closely with mandated coverage and objectives set by the Board of Directors. This remit, across a range of asset classes, will take operational responsibility across the sourcing, due diligence and execution of deals and investment transactions whilst also being at the frontline of any dealings with financial institutions, brokerages or advisory firms. 

The CIO also will have ownership of investment and compliance monitoring, whilst overseeing any internal and external reporting requirements, to either shareholders, senior management or financing syndications. 

This would also span any audit and legal checking processes; to ensure strict governance and strong analytical appraisal tools.

About you
The client is looking to identify a senior qualified professional, with a minimum of 15 years’ experience, across both buy-side and sell-side platforms and institutions. In conjunction, the client will look for an individual whom can demonstrate a broad knowledge across a range of asset classes, to allow for a strong advisory capability, complementing both existing and prospective investment opportunities and any diversification. 

The client will most certainly look for a CFA qualified candidate whom is also well-versed within the UAE and/or GCC market; with a demonstrable track record of both entry and exit strategies across the investment arena. In conjunction to this technical assessment, the client will also require a candidate with a strong commercial gravitas and a managerial capability to oversee, upskill and succession-plan across the team. 

Finally and of equal importance, the client will look for a candidate whom can manage and introduce strong relationships, across all functional disciplines within the role, to ensure strong channels of communication and understanding at all points within the investment cycle (origination through to execution or divestment).
