Ex-Head of Emerging Markets Sales at Credit Suisse Switched to Crypto

Credit Suisse no longer wants its business in emerging markets. When the bank announced its restructuring plan in october, emerging markets was placed in the “liquidation” category within the capital release unit. Amir Ben Gacem, the bank’s head of emerging markets sales, left a few weeks ago. Today he starts a new job; it’s in crypto.

Ben Gacem is a partner and portfolio manager at Record Financial Group, an investment management firm in London’s West End. Gacem joins as a partner focused on digital assets.

This seems a curious choice in light of FTX’s implosion and doubts about the future of the crypto industry. Ben Gacem declined to comment for this article, but he’s not alone in seeing a future for crypto beyond scandals surrounding seemingly nefarious exchanges: Many market players are suggesting that blockchain technology and its associated assets have a future beyond the scum of the past few years. .

Amir spent 10 years at Credit Suisse. Previously, he worked at Morgan Stanley for four years and at BNP Paribas for eight years. He is a graduate of the prestigious Paris Dauphine Masters.
