Ayyaz is the APAC Managing Director of Funds Partnership. Having decided early in his career to switch from chemical engineering to recruitment, he joined a leading recruitment firm in London in 2005 to help build the asset management desk. After the firm listed on the AIM index, he exited along with Rana in order to co-found Funds Partnership in 2007. Following on from the establishment and fast growth of Fund Partnership’s European business, Ayyaz relocated to Singapore in 2010 to extend Funds Partnership’s reach across the globe. He is supported by a team of 10 across two offices, with the APAC seat being in Singapore. Funds Partnership Asia has quickly built a strong reputation for excellent hires in Private Equity Funds in the region, specifically in Front Office roles in Hong Kong and China.
