Wealth management fintech firm JHC Systems (JHC), has today announced the opening of its first international outpost in Dubai.
The office, located in Dubai Internet City is a direct response to the increasing demand that JHC is experiencing in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Private wealth management growth in MENA is expected to outpace the rest of the world over the next 5 years.
Leading the new office is Amer Attar - who joins JHC as Head of Strategic Alliances. No stranger to fintech and financial services in the Middle East, Amer joins JHC from Openlink, where he managed regional activities including all channel and customer relationships. He was also responsible for growing market share and onboarding new partners. Previously Amer held similar roles at Misys (now Finastra) and Fujitsu.
Amer will be responsible for overseeing all activity in the region, managing key relationships and introducing new partners to a growing JHC network.
Amer Attar, Head of Strategic Alliances at JHC comments: "A growing and diverse client base and proven suite of digital solutions, coupled with a respected brand identity and solid investment strategy - including global expansion, made JHC a natural choice for me. I am ready to put my local knowledge and excellent delivery track record to good use and help JHC implement their strategy in the region and worldwide."
John Blackman, CEO at JHC, said: "Opening an office in Dubai, our first outside the UK, enables us to support the demand that we have experienced to-date. It also demonstrates to our clients and partners that we are committed to helping them achieve their goals, as well as executing on our own global growth plans. JHC products and services have already been welcomed by firms in the region, and with the addition of Amer, we are looking forward to increasing our global reach."
