The Qatar Financial Centre Authority has picked the former alternative investments chief of the emirate’s pension fund to serve as deputy CEO.
Mohammed Al-Jaida was head of indirect investment at the Qatar General Retirement and Pension Authority, overseeing hedge funds and private-equity funds, until his move to the QFC as chief strategic development officer.
“I am honored by the appointment and grateful to His Excellency the Minister and the board for the confidence they have placed in me,” Al-Jaida said. “With the support and hard work of everyone at the QFC Authority, we will build on the progress we have made shaping Doha into a world-class business hub.”
