Amundi appoints new chief executive for Middle East

Srouji, who will be based in Abu Dhabi, joined Amundi in May as chief executive of the Middle East from Standard Chartered Bank where she was head of investors and public sector, covering Sovereign Wealth Funds and other institutional clients across the MENA region.

A former Goldman Sachs investment banker in London, Srouji also has experience in the alternatives space, having set up the first mezzanine fund in the Middle East North Africa region for the National Bank of Kuwait in 2006.

Srouji started her career in 1997 in corporate law, first in Toronto and then in London at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. She moved into investment banking in 2002 when she joined Goldman Sachs in London.

Amundi, which was formed in 2010 by combining the asset management operations of France’s Crédit Agricole and Société Générale, has long stated its aim to expand outside its European base in order to develop its role as a top 10 global asset manager.

It offers savings solutions to more than 100 million retail clients worldwide via its partner networks and has 1,000 institutional clients and sovereign entities in more than 30 countries.
