"I worked with Imran Ahmed when he was running a fund management company in the UAE, and he used my company to help raise assets in the UK and Swiss markets.
He clearly managed the company to the best international standards and was a pleasure to work with, his professionalism in all matters being appreciated by the investment buyers we took him to meet. He obviously has broad knowledge of the international financial services industry given that he has worked out of some of the major financial centres.
In short, he brings product knowledge, common sense, and determination to his business activities."
John Kirkham Chief Executive Officer Fund Building Limited London, England
