Few people would have imagined Karim Moussalem becoming a managing director in Goldman Sachs at a relatively young age of 29.
But he proved that it was achievable.
No one would have expected him to quit the top global private bank shortly after.
Yet he did.
In 2011 and at the age of 31, Karim Moussalem left Goldman Sachs and co-founded Verrazzano Capital, a $1.6bn hedge fund.
Within a decade of working experience, Karim Moussalem had risen from the bottom of the corporate ladder, to the pinnacle of the investment industry.
How did he achieve such huge success in his relatively short financial career?
