Heptagon Capital, a London-based asset manager, has boosted its private client business by appointing Rajaa Mekouar as a new director for its family office/high-net-worth (HNW) team last month.
In her new role, Mekouar will work with family offices and ultra-high-net-worth individuals across Europe and selected international markets.
Mekour has joined Heptagon Capital from Maera Capital, a family office-focused advisory and co-investment boutique, where he served as founding director. Prior to this, she worked for six years as a principal at Lazard European Private Equity Partners and Change Capital Partners.
Previously, she also worked at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, and began her career at Procter & Gamble.
Tarek Mooro managing partner Heptagon said: "Heptagon managed to significantly expand our investment products and capabilities during the last nine years, and are therefore able to cater to the needs of a wide range of institutional and private clients keen on tailor-made investment solutions.
"We are confident that Rajaa, who we have known for several years, is ideally equipped to help expand Heptagon’s private client business, given her strong international relationships and professional experience advising family offices on a wide range of investments," he added.
Established in 2005, Heptagon Capital with $8.6 billion in assets employs 25 staff in London and serves institutional and ultrahigh net worth investors.
