Heptagon Expands Private Client Team

Apr 28 2014 | 8:28am ET

London-based Heptagon Capital, an $8.6 billion asset manager, has tapped Rajaa Mekouar for its family office/high-net-worth team.

Mekouar brings over 15 years' experience to her new job, having spent six years as principal at Lazard European Private Equity Partners and Change Capital Partners, followed by six years as a founding director of Maera Capital, a family office-focused advisory and co-investment boutique. Prior to that, she worked at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, and started her career at Procter & Gamble.

In her new post at Heptagon, Mekouar will work with family offices and ultra-high-net-worth individuals across Europe and selected international markets.
 
Said Heptagon managing partner Tarek Mooro in a statement: “Heptagon managed to significantly expand our investment products and capabilities during the last nine years, and are therefore able to cater to the needs of a wide range of institutional and private clients keen on tailor-made investment solutions. We feel the time is right to make a bigger push into the private client market, which requires such customization. We are confident that Rajaa, who we have known for several years, is ideally equipped to help expand Heptagon’s private client business, given her strong international relationships and professional experience advising family offices on a wide range of investments.”

Heptagon Capital was founded in 2005 by former Morgan Stanley senior executives, including Eran Ben-Zour, Tarek Mooro and Fredrik Plyhr. Headquartered in London, the firm employs a staff of 25.
