Alternative investment firm Investcorp has appointed former BNP Paribas and JPMorgan executive Mashaal AlJomaih as a managing director for private wealth in Saudi Arabia.

AlJomaih, who will be based in Riyadh, will support the expansion of the company’s client base in Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the appointment Investcorp KSA CEO Yasser Bajsair said: “We are delighted to welcome Mashaal, who brings with him over 20 years of experience in investment banking. His deep knowledge and understanding of Saudi Arabia’s market, which is a key market for Investcorp, as well as his experience in wealth management, make him ideal for this role.”

The appointment follows the launch of a dedicated $500m pre-IPO vehicle that will focus on partnering with Saudi family businesses aspiring to go public across consumer, healthcare, transport and logistics, and business services segments.
