Muscat: Bank Sohar has recently appointed Aziz Al Jahdhami as its new Assistant General Manager and Head of Wealth Management. Al Jahdhami has undertook the responsibility of spearheading the bank’s wealth management with a range of developments expected in 2019, including new products, investment platforms and services in-line with the bank’s continuous drive to excellence.
“We welcome Aziz to the Executive Team following a redirect in our vision with a focus on Wealth Management. We aspire to deliver higher levels of banking excellence to the HNI segment and in our preparations, Aziz’s capabilities will be central to the implementation of strategic developments that will inspire new avenues for sustainable growth and market penetration," Ahmed Al Musalmi, CEO of Bank Sohar, said.

With aspirations to becoming the most customer oriented bank benchmarking itself against international standards, it is imperative to have this calibre of professional on-board,” he added.

"As we step into 2019, Aziz will spearhead a range of developments, featuring responsibility over new products, investment tie-ups and services as the bank works to advance its Wealth Management platforms and investment tools. It gives us great pleasure to welcome Aziz on-board as a market leader of growing repute,” he added.
