“Dubai’s economic and investment landscape are impossible to ignore,” said Steve Andrews, CEO at Novia Global. “There are over a thousand financial companies in the DIFC, while Dubai is home to over $950bn in private wealth and set to attract many more high-net-worth individuals.

“A growing number of advisers and clients want to be a part of this success story, and we see an on-the-ground presence as essential to our own role in helping make that possible,” he added.

“We see Dubai and the broader region as a spectacular market, it is now arguably the hub to the world and Mark is the ideal hire for harnessing all the opportunities that it presents.”
