About Nathan Fox


My Name is Nathan Ross Fox and I recruit within the Investment Management space across the GCC.

Professional Expertise:

The Areas on which we have found to be the busiest across 2023 have been Direct Investments and Portfolio Management within the Buy side, and M&A and ECM on the sell side.

Career Summary:

I have recently been working alongside a number of Blue Chip Investment Banks and SWF subsidiaries across the GCC and have managed to place Nationals and Expats into positions from Analyst to C-level.

Why recruitment?

Great Development and Career Progression, Creating your own business within a business, having a positive impact on people's lives/careers.

Industry Insights:

Knowing your market is key, I believe that keeping up with Market Trends and News is one of the best ways to be seen as credible when speaking to clients. I am continuously posting Articles on LinkedIn about the Investment GCC Market.

What is your approach to recruitment / executive search?

My approach is friendly and memorable. As mentioned in the previous question, building a trusted friendship with either a candidate or a client has to come with some insight into what is happening within the market. Having the ability to “consult” as well as “recruit” is positive for both parties.

Success Stories:

All placements are successful if the client and candidate are happy with the proposal offer. My favourite deal has to be a Private Equity placement in Saudi Arabia, I had recently been in touch with a candidate on the sell side who was looking for a buy-side opportunity within a very niche sector. I had been speaking to a client within this field and had spoken highly about this candidate to the client on a Video Call. After 2 interviews with their Talent Acquisition team and CEO, we had an offer for our candidate. This was an opportunity which he could not turn down and he proceeded to make a move from Dubai to Saudi Arabia to start his new role.

Fun Facts:

I have played football against the likes of Marcus Rashford & Jadon Sancho.

Why Aventus:

The reason I love working at Aventus is that you have an opportunity to build your business from inside the Aventus workplace. Having the ability to ask all members of staff for help when needed with no sense of fear is a big part of the reason you see consultants achieving great things at the business. I have been told many times that I ask a lot of questions, but this has only helped me grow as a consultant and as a person.

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
