GFH appoints CEO of UK operations

MANAMA: GFH Financial Group (GFH) has announced the appointment of Tariq Al Samahiji as chief executive of its UK operations effective immediately.

Mr Al Samahiji will be responsible for driving further expansion of GFH’s international presence.

He brings to the role more than two decades of experience in the global banking sector across asset management, capital markets, Islamic finance and credit.

GFH currently has assets of over $12 billion globally and looks to build its international portfolio through organic and inorganic growth.

The group’s London operation will play a strategic role in further strengthening GFH’s pipeline of opportunities and partnerships while effectively managing and growing its blue-chip investments across key sectors that include real estate, logistics and warehousing, healthcare, technology and education, among others.

GFH is registered in the UK as a representative office of its Bahrain headquarters in April 2019 and went on in December 2020 to acquire a majority stake in Roebuck Asset Management, a leading real estate asset manager focused on the UK and European logistics and business space.
