In addition to his recent work at MOFA, he has extensive experience working at major banks such as Dubai Islamic Bank, Dubai Bank and Ajman Bank.
Throughout his career, he has played an important role in identifying forward-thinking ideas by researching industry and related events, publications, announcements, as well as tracking individual contributors and their accomplishments. He was responsible for screening potential deals by analyzing market strategies, evaluating options, resolving internal priorities and recommending equity investments.
Nasser Al Awadhi, Managing Director of ADIB Group, said, “I believe our customers look to us to deliver a tailored experience that not only generates financial benefits, but is also in line with their values. To this end, the ADIB Private Bank plays a strategic role in the development of our wealth management services.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Business Studies from the International School of Management, London School, UK.
The recruitment, development and promotion of local talent in the UAE has been at the heart of ADIB’s human resources strategy. ADIB also runs separate training programs dedicated to supporting UAE nationals within the bank. As a result, the bank has one of the highest rates of Emiratization in the country, with around 40% of its workforce made up of UAE nationals. — [email protected]
