Ali was formerly an M&A and Private Equity partner at RSM, where he spent 18 years working in their London deal doing team. During that time he established RSM’s Leisure & Hospitality practice and played a leading role in building the firm’s presence within the UK’s private equity community.
Ali has spent the last 24 years working on mid-market deals; providing sell side and capital raising advice to owner managed, founder led and private equity backed businesses. During that time Ali developed a love for consumer facing and brand led businesses. And after many years of advising founders he was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and established Tamweel; an independent M&A and investment advisory boutique that’s obsessed with putting its clients first. Whilst at Tamweel, Ali and his team have led and completed several land mark deals with some of the UK’s most exciting and high growth challenger brands. These include businesses such as: Gymbox backed by BGF, Frame backed by Piper, Swingers backed by Cain International and Ten Health & Fitness backed by Foresight. Ali’s mission is to continue working with the best consumer facing businesses, securing his clients the best deals and establishing Tamweel as the ‘go to’ advisor for the best challenger brands in the market.
