This exquisite ceremony saw the presence of trailblazers from various industries who have scaled massive heights of success and have shared their passion journey.
Amir Tabch has been fascinated by financial markets and wealth management since his first job in the industry as an intern. Two decades later, Amir is a prominent executive with extensive experience in global capital markets and on corporate boards.
Amir has applied what he has learned at some of the world’s leading educational institutions and combined it with on-the-job training, hard work, common sense and a keen understanding of trends in Private Banking, Wealth Management, Asset Management, Brokerage, and WealthTech, to spearhead several trailblazing projects & teams.
Amir has worked with Wealth Managers, Private Banks, Asset Managers, Brokers, Market Makers, Exchanges & Central Counterparty Clearing Houses in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, & North America. He has also held senior positions in both Support & Control and front office wealth management & brokerage.
Amir is enthralled with graphs, trends, and patterns. When Amir’s son was born, his wife was hooked up to a monitor to chart her vital signs. He was fascinated by the numbers, the wave patterns and the highs and lows on the screen. “This looks just like a stock!” Amir told his wife. “You’re not working now!” she said. “Focus on me.”
Outside of work, Amir, 39, has been married to Mayssoun, his first love, for 14 years and has two children, Amir Junior, and Talia.
His interest in the industry began as an intern at a bank in Beirut, where he worked in the vehicle loans business. He was requested to deliver a package to a private bank and observed the traders using the Reuters console while he was there. He was captivated by the charts and graphs, as well as how the stock values changed.
