Amir Zada

“My years at St Faith’s and the Leys were truly formative as the youngest ever full time boarder.

Being practically raised at the school taught me independence and discipline from a very early stage. I take my time at the school throughout my life as it shaped who I am today.

I have worked at Exotix Ltd. A British Investment Bank focused on Frontier Emerging Markets. I ran the New York office and have lived in NYC for 11 years now. I also spent a significant time working in the Jakarta office of the firm. My career with Exotix has allowed me to travel and deal with governments from Angola, Kenya and Uganda to Cuba, North Korea and Yemen.

I am also on the Board of Advisers for TLG Capital, a Sub Saharan African focused Private Equity and Credit Fund.

I have since left my job at Exotix and am now Head of Fixed Income and Special Situations, North America at Renaissance Capital, a leading Russian Investment Bank focused on Russia, CIS and Africa.”
