Temasek Said to Have Hired Rothschild Banker Khodor Mattar

Khodor Mattar, a Dubai-based director at Rothschild, is leaving the investment bank to join Temasek Holdings Pte (TMSK), Singapore’s state-owned investment company, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Mattar will join Temasek’s group overseeing energy and resources investments, said the person, who asked not to be named as the information isn’t public. Mattar didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail and calls to his mobile phone. Temasek spokesmen couldn’t be reached immediately.

Mattar’s move was reported earlier today by Reuters, which cited an unidentified person familiar with the matter.
