Renaissance Capital adds Zeinelabedin to MENA team

HiredThe Dubai-based Middle East office of emerging market asset manager Renaissance Capital has hired Mohamed Zeinelabedin as a research analyst covering the consumer and retail sectors.

Zeinelabedin was previously a senior equity research analyst at CI Capital in Cairo. He has also worked at HC Securities & Investment and as a junior economist in the Egyptian Ministry of Trade and Industry.

He will report to Ahmed Badr, chief executive of the MENA branch of the business.

Renaissance Capital was founded in 1995 to invest in Russia’s emerging capital markets. In a statement to release the firm’s results for the first six months of the year, chief executive Igor Vayn said “the firm has grown from a Russia-focused bank to one of the leading international investment banks in the emerging and frontier space”.
