Gulf Investment Fund Names Non-Executive Director

The listed company invests in businesses across the GCC region.

The Gulf Investment Fund, a UK-listed investment company, has appointed former JP Morgan Asset Management and Schroders senior figure Patrick Grant as a non-executive director, taking effect from yesterday. 

Grant was head of the Middle East for JP Morgan Asset Management for a decade; following that he was in the same role for Schroders for more than 12 years.  His earlier career included working at John Swire & Sons across Asia (including in Bahrain) after six years as an officer in the British Army (Gurkhas).  He has a degree in modern history from Oxford University.

"We welcome Patrick Grant to the Board of Gulf Investment Fund. He knows the region in detail.  He understands investment management.  And he has current, detailed knowledge of the Gulf Cooperation Council states, and how they are developing their economies.  We look forward to working with him,” Anderson Whamond, chairman of Gulf Investment Fund, said.
