VAM Sales Team

Helen Holmes
Investment Director
Helen’s financial career began in Zimbabwe in 2004 where she managed pension fund and private client investment portfolios in a period of hyper-inflation. In 2007, she moved to Dubai where she joined Emirates NBD Asset Management as a fund analyst, and later progressed to fund manager working on the fixed income and global funds’ desks. In 2013, she headed up the international funds’ desk and, with the appointment of a delegate investment manager, Helen was able to focus her time on promoting the suite of multi-manager funds, managing high net worth discretionary portfolios, as well as carrying out due diligence to develop new products. Helen’s buy-side background provides an excellent accompaniment to VAM’s strong sales team.
