Heptagon Capital Adds Goldman Vet To Advisory Group

Sep 14 2011 | 7:00am ET

London-based Heptagon Capital, a $4.5 billion asset manager business set up in 2005 by former Morgan Stanley executives, has hired former Goldman Sachs executive director Naz Hedayat as a director within the advisory group.

In her new role, Hedayat will focus on delivering investment solutions to family offices and institutions in the Middle East.

Hedayat was an executive director at Goldman Sachs in London from 2001-2008, where she was part of the institutional wealth management team providing wealth management solutions and advice to family offices and ultra high net worth individuals in the Middle East. Immediately prior to joining Heptagon, Hedayat also spent two years in Dubai working at Emirates NBD. Hedayat was at Merrill Lynch private banking in New York from 1999-2001 where she worked on the international desk.

Said Tarek Mooro, CEO and founding partner of Heptagon Capital: “Even though the financial market shakeout, that began in the U.S. in 2008, is still very prevalent in the EU today, Heptagon has managed to maintain steady growth in its core areas of providing class-leading and timely investment solutions to our ultra high net worth and institutional clients…[W]e are confident that the addition of Naz to our team will further enhance the breadth, capabilities and ultimately the performance of our investment solutions”.

Heptagon was founded in 2005 by former Morgan Stanley directors, including Eran Ben-Zour, Tarek Mooro and Fredrik Plyhr.
