In the next three years, the target is to have 400 staff,” said GF Nihalani, Managing Director of the firm “We started with four people and now we have over 100 people. Last year, our turnover crossed Dhs50m, and we are heading towards Dhs100m this year.” Despite the fact that survey results show that residents find banking and finance as the second most attractive profession, Nihalani believes that finding the right talent is an uphill task in the local market.
