Lombard Odier appoints Amer Malik as head of Dubai office

Lombard Odier has appointed Amer Malik as head of its Dubai office, pending regulatory approval.

With over two decades of experience working for financial institutions in the United States and the Middle East, including at Julius Baer in Dubai and HSBC Private Bank, the firm said that Malik will facilitate its growth in this region.


Arnaud Leclercq, private holding partner and head of new markets at Lombard Odier said: “Bringing over two decades of experience in the sector, and over 15 years of experience in the Middle East, we trust that Amer will be a key asset in the expansion of Lombard Odier’s more than 50-year presence in the region.”


The UAE is one of Lombard Odier's fastest-growing business regions, experiencing increased demand from wealthy clients in the Middle East to offer services from their offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. 

To support its expansion in Dubai, Lombard Odier said it will strengthen the local team with more hires in the coming weeks.
