Paris-based alternative asset manager, Tikehau Capital, has hired Hassan Karimi as a Middle East senior adviser to support its expansion in the region.
Tikehau is looking to “build strategic partnerships in the region” and Karimi has been hired to provide insights on allocation trends.
He is the co-founder of Dubai-based asset manager KHK & Partners where he will continue to work as managing director while advising Tikehau.
Prior to founding KHK, Karimi spent five years at the Emirates Investment Authority. He has also worked for the Carlyle Group and UBS.
“Ensuring that investors globally have access to private markets and alternative investments is a key priority for us,” said Thomas Friedberger, co-chief investment officer and chief executive of Tikehau Investment Management. “[Karimi’s] appointment reflects our commitment to building our franchise in the GCC,” he added.
