Abu Dhabi: Brevan co-founder relocates

Brevan Howard co-founder Trifon Natsis is relocating to Abu Dhabi, as the Jersey-based macro manager, which runs more than $30bn, builds its presence in the U.A.E.

The new office is in the Al Sarab Tower and part of Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), a financial centre in the capital of the United Arab Emirates which is attracting increasing numbers of hedge funds.

“Abu Dhabi and ADGM offers a transparent and business-friendly environment to the banking, fintech, and investment management industries,” said Alan Howard earlier this year.
