Eigner is the founder and chairman of Lonworld, a private finance, property and investment group, as well as a governor of the London Business School and was previously a senior manager at ANZ Grindlays Bank Plc in London.

Dubai also extended the term of DFSA’s current board members for three years, according to an e-mailed statement.
