Due to continued growth, Rosette Merchant Bank has appointed its General Counsel, Zahir Nayani, as its new Chief Operating Officer.
Nayani, who joined Rosette in 2017, will be responsible for managing the firm’s increasingly diverse operational demands whilst continuing to act as lead legal counsel across the full spectrum of the firm’s activities.
Sam Broadhead, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
Zahir’s appointment as COO is a testament to his aptitude for embracing a broad portfolio of responsibility, of which sound legal advice constitutes just one element. Rosette is well placed for a successful 2019 which will no doubt be bolstered by this well-deserved appointment.
Additionally, the firm has announced the appointment of Dr. Ian Robinson as Consultant to drive its new capital markets offering. With over 20 years of experience in structured credit and investment, Dr. Robinson is equally well-known within the Islamic finance industry for his pivotal role in structuring and process-managing Europe’s first sukuk utilising a residential mortgage-backed securitisation.
