Deutsche Bank’s Chief Country Officer quits & joins Aramis Partners

Nadeem Masud, who has been Deutsche Bank’s Chief Country Officer for the UAE since November 2011, has resigned the German bank and joined as founding partner and board member of Aramis Partners.

Masud spent over 18 years with Deutsche Bank after joining its Relative Value Group (RVG Structuring) in 1997. He holds an MBA from Wharton Graduate Business School. Aramis Partners was started by Sailesh Doshi, who left Deutsche Bank last year. Doshi was the co-head of Deutsche Bank’s investment banking in the Middle East.

Aramis Partners is a Dubai-based private equity and advisory company with Middle East focus. The firm received a licence last month from Dubai International Financial Centre for fund management, capital raising and advisory services.
