GSB Capital hires wealth management chief in Dubai growth drive

GSB Capital, one of the few wealth management businesses regulated in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), has appointed Dean Kemble as its Managing Partner for Financial Planning.

He brings over 20 years of experience in financial planning, and is one of the most well-respected people in the industry. Dean epitomises GSB’s ethics and ethos, and will support founding partners Alison Whatnall and Ross Whatnall in continuing to disrupt the industry and provide a forward-thinking platform for highly ethical, skilled and qualified asset managers to work from.

This approach has been well-received to date by local and regional investors, according to Ross. “Since setting up GSB Capital earlier this year, we have experienced tremendous growth in our business as investors in the UAE have had enough of the opaque financial services industry and want to partner with more transparent, trustworthy advisers delivering real value.”

“As soon as Alison and Ross shared their vision for GSB Capital, I couldn’t wait to get involved in such an exciting project,” said Dean. “Clients and asset managers are crying out for a place they can feel proud to be a part of; we will continue to disrupt and innovate to deliver our Principled Values and Trusted Performance.”

The peace of mind GSB Capital offers by operating in a jurisdiction like the DFSA is a notable advantage. “The regulatory protection is on par with some of the best financial centres in the world,” added Ross.

Meanwhile, Dean will also lead the venture capital partnership with Klint Ventures, a tech-focused investment company investing in growth-phase companies. Klint Ventures is also in the process of listing on a Swiss stock exchange during Q4 2021.

GSB Capital is also separately expanding its private client business as well as opening offices in the UK and Europe by the end of Q1 2022.
