Solihull-based management consultancy Quantuma has announced that it will further expand its international presence with the opening of an office in Dubai.
The office, led by Managing Director Yaser Dajani, is the company’s fourth international location – including Cyprus, the Cayman Islands and Mauritius – and its 23rd location worldwide, with 18 offices across the UK since its inception by CEO Carl Jackson in 2013.
The Middle East team will be based in the Index Towers at the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) and provide services including financial investigations and forensic accounting, asset tracking and recovery, restructuring and bankruptcy, corporate finance and business transformation.
Dajani has over 20 years of experience in forensics, investigative, transactional and non-transactional business intelligence, asset tracing and process consulting, and reputation testing and management.
He also leads internal investigations on behalf of clients and regulators focusing on fraud, financial manipulation, waste of wealth, gross embezzlement, conflicts of interest and corporate misconduct.
He will be supported at the new location by General Managers Rehan Ahmed and DIFC-registered insolvency administrator Taz Rashid and supported by a multidisciplinary team of specialists who have carried out a number of assignments in the Middle East.
Dajani will also work closely with Andrew Hosking, a Managing Director on their restructuring and bankruptcy team and Head of International at the firm, to further develop the cross-border advisory services and offering.
The new Dubai office follows the company’s strong performance over the past 12 months as the demand for its services continued to grow and responded with a 45 percent increase in staff and 28 promotions during that time.
This includes the recent hiring of Poland-based Adam Markiewicz as managing director on his forensic accounting and investigative team. It now plans further growth in its restructuring and bankruptcy, corporate finance and cross-border advisory teams.
In August 2021, the company merged with K3 Capital Group, an AIM-listed group of professional service companies, as part of its plan to continue building an international, multidisciplinary consulting firm.
Jackson said, “As the business continues to perform exceptionally well around the world, we are constantly looking to expand our international footprint to meet market demand. The Middle East is an important and strategic location for us to offer our support and advice to companies of all sizes to ensure that they can continue to grow. Yaser’s local insight and expertise will be critical as we build the profile of our new office, develop our global presence in selected jurisdictions and financial centers, and increase our cross-border advisory capabilities. “
Dajani added, “I am very excited to join Quantuma when it opens its first office in the United Arab Emirates. As a global team, we have a thorough understanding of the opportunities and challenges businesses across the Middle East are facing and look forward to advising our customers in the region. We are truly a single company that delivers excellence and results-driven results, and I look forward to building and growing the Quantuma business in the Middle East. “
