Henry Dyer's professional journey is a testament to his commitment to excellence in the world of finance and investments. Before making his mark in Dubai, he was based in London, working for a Venture Capital firm that operated under the Berkeley umbrella. Five years ago, he took on the challenge of relocating to Dubai to assume a pivotal role within Berkeley, and he hasn't looked back since.
In London, Henry was instrumental in raising capital for a series of smaller blockchain companies. His role went beyond traditional funding; he acted as the umbrella for these businesses, providing not just financial support but also strategic guidance to help them grow and expand in a competitive market.
Before venturing into the world of Venture Capital, Henry's background was rooted in investment banking. He gained diverse experience working for an Australian Investment Bank, where he seamlessly navigated multiple departments, including the analyst team and the trading floor. It was during this time that he discovered his passion for investor relations and capital raising.
Henry's skills and attributes are as varied as his professional journey. From capital raising and sales management to real estate and private equity, he brings a comprehensive skill set to the table. His proficiency in client relations has been a key factor in his success, making him a valuable asset in the financial landscape.
Notably, Henry has played a pivotal role in the growth of the private client division at Berkeley. His contributions have not only expanded the division's offerings but also facilitated its entry into new markets. His experience in raising capital, particularly for private and professional clients (HNWI’s, UHNW’s and family offices), showcases his ability to connect with individuals and build lasting relationships.
Now, Henry has set his sights on the UAE market, bringing with him a UK-centric understanding and approach. His goal is to closely collaborate with the private investors including HNWI and UHNWI’s as well as pension funds and family offices in the Middle East region, leveraging his expertise to raise capital for Berkeley Assets, a prominent private equity firm in the region.
As Henry continues to excel in the finance and investment sector, his journey serves as an inspiration for those aspiring to make a mark in the dynamic world of capital raising and private equity.
