Mr. Rani Jarkas is a highly experienced and accomplished financial services executive, with over 23 years of international banking experience. Currently, Mr. Jarkas is the Chairman and CEO of Cedrus Group and its member companies worldwide, which is a global boutique investment firm headquartered in Hong Kong, with offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Jakarta, Cayman Islands.
Cedrus is a new breed of firm that has developed a powerful presence in global investment management. The firm’s edge over other financial institutions is its relentless commitment to providing clients with solutions that enable them to meet their investment goals.
As an independent boutique investment firm, Cedrus is agile and nimble, and has the flexibility to work with leading platform and service providers worldwide. In contrast to large investment firms that are structured to be fully self-contained, utilizing closed and often dated platforms as well as proprietary products, Cedrus utilizes a state-of-the-art, open-architecture platform and some of the most cutting-edge technologies in the marketplace, offering clients with global access, anonymous order execution, transparency, optimal execution and settlements in all major markets.
Through this open-architecture platform, together with first-class business partners, extensive international experience and connections, Cedrus uniquely offers clients access to top-tier fund managers from around the world, direct investments opportunities, single multi-currency accounts, a team that executes real-time trades in multiple markets and global custody services.
In addition, Cedrus’ local operating teams are seasoned and well-connected with a worldwide network of legal, accounting, insurance and trust professionals. They are tasked with bringing unique value to local investors as well as identifying the most promising investment opportunities in their respective regions for Cedrus’ diverse international client base, especially the emerging areas of growth because Cedrus believes that private investors, institutional investors and corporations alike must think globally to capture the best opportunities and mitigate risks associated with currency fluctuations, changing market valuations, and political or economic developments.
