Grant is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment (CISI). After ten years working in the financial services industry in the UK, the last 7 of which were spent at the Oxford office of Charles Stanley, Grant relocated to Dubai at the beginning of 2017 and joined Mondial (Dubai) L.L.C. Through the BBG and a number of other networking organisations that Grant has affiliated himself with since his arrival in Dubai, Grant has quickly established a significant number of contacts across a broad range of sectors. Grant is a keen networker who relishes the opportunity to meet new individuals and learn about their businesses, in order to build long lasting relationships. In his opinion, this is the only way to build a network of professional contacts with a solid foundation and which is best placed to assist both clients and other professionals in developing their networks. When not networking, Grant is a Chartered Wealth Manager and Financial Analyst who assists high net worth individuals in managing their wealth and planning for the future. Whilst the title might not be familiar to many in Dubai, the ‘Chartered Wealth Manager’ designation is a title awarded by the CISI to recognise senior members in the UK at the pinnacle of their profession. In his new role of chair of the Banking & Finance Focus Group and with very large shoes to fill following Andrew’s Mortimer’s promotion within the British Business Group, Grant is eagerly looking forward to having the opportunity to meet more members of the BBG and to learn how both the Banking & Finance Focus group and the BBG can best assist each member. Feedback from members on all topics, including suggestions for topics for focus group presentations, will always be greatly appreciated and very much welcomed!
