About me

  • Bilaal is an investment professional who specializes in deal execution and strategic projects. As a co-founder of Ardra Partners he provides investor and company support during essential transactions
  • He has spent the latter part of his career working alongside management teams to help them develop and execute Corporate Development and Strategy. This has included working directly with the CEO and CFO of Deliveroo and DAZN, two later-stage tech startups, and across a range of companies and board-level topics
  • Bilaal started his career in Investment Banking, where he spent over four years working directly with MDs with little to no mid-level support. He enjoyed this level of responsibility and completed a range of deals across the Chemicals and Business Services sectors. He managed and significantly built out the junior-level  team  
  • Bilaal has developed a solid foundation in financial analysis which he has since complemented with operational and strategic experience in high-growth firms. This unique experience has allowed him to understand the importance of translating investor aims and language to management. Subsequently, this has resulted in a strong understanding of how to execute on a day-to-day basis.
  • Bilaal achieved a First Class Honors in Economics from Durham University
