Diab will take responsibility for Mena equities within the GLG emerging markets team and will report into Bart Turtelboom and Karim Abdel-Motaal, GLG’s co-heads of emerging markets.
“We are delighted that Mark is joining GLG – his knowledge of the Mena region, as well as his broad investment and financial services experience will be an added strength to the GLG emerging markets team. He has a fantastic investment track record and we look forward to the significant contribution that Mark will bring to the firm going forward,” says Turtelboom.
