RELATED TOPICS​

Bob Wigley has joined the board of the Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFA), as a Non-Executive Director.  

Previously Chairman of Merrill Lynch Europe, Middle East and Africa, Bob’s current roles include being Chairman of Yell Group plc. He was appointed an Ambassador for UK Business by David Cameron, the UK Prime Minister, in 2011.
 
In line with the QFC Authority’s strategic focus on Asset Management, Reinsurance and Captives Insurance, a key part of Wigley’s role will be to widely promote Qatar to the global fund management industry as a major regional hub for asset management.
 
Abdulrahman Al-Shaibi, Managing Director of the QFCA, says: “Bob’s vast experience, both globally and in the Middle East, his contacts and his deep knowledge of financial centres and the asset management industry will be hugely valuable to the QFC Authority. This is an excellent appointment and we very much look forward to working with Bob over the next few years.”
 
Wigley says: “I’ve been hugely impressed by Qatar as a country and Doha as a developing financial centre.  The QFC Authority has a strong platform to build upon and a clear strategy as to how to attract leading financial institutions to the country.  These are very exciting times for Qatar and I look forward to playing my part in ensuring that the global asset management industry is fully aware of everything we have to offer.”
