French asset manager Amundi SA has appointed former Standard Chartered Plc banker Nesreen Srouji as chief executive officer for its Middle East operations.

Srouji was most recently the head of investors and the public sector at the British lender covering sovereign wealth funds and other institutional clients in the Middle East and North Africa, Amundi said in a statement Wednesday. Srouji joined the asset manager in May and is based in the firm’s Abu Dhabi office.
