Emerging and frontier market investment firm Renaissance Capital has hired Maxim Perlin as head of trading in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), based in Dubai.
Perlin, who previously worked for United Capital Partners and United Financial Group and most recently for a business consultancy in Dubai, will report to Ahmed Badr, chief executive of Renaissance Capital's MENA business.
"His deep experience and knowledge in trading emerging markets will significantly enhance our MENA execution capabilities," said Badr.
The company says Perlin will work with Renaissance teams in London, Moscow and South Africa as he executes trades for the firm.
Renaissance Capital set up its Dubai-based business in the third quarter of 2014. Last October, the firm said it had hired Mohamed Zeinelabedin as a research analyst covering the consumer and retail sectors.
