Tarek Anwar

Tarek has had a long and diverse career in building successful and sustainable multibillion dollar businesses. The bulk of this time was with Bank of America and Standard Chartered Bank where he was Managing Director and Corporate Banking Co Head of Europe.

I have always believed that we all have a choice. A choice to build a far better world, starting with ourselves.

During his three and a half decades working around the globe with amazing people, Tarek has always believed that we all have a choice. A choice to build a far better world, starting with ourselves. He believes it is a choice that we can all make every single day.

In 2016 Tarek founded his own company, FinVelo with a focus on three areas – coaching senior leaders at the top of their game, providing Board level NED/advisory counsel and mentoring for entrepreneurs. At the same time, he joined the Asian Leadership Institute and trained in their triad coaching model which he has applied to his work across a range of clients in multiple industries and geographies including financial institutions, governments, multi-lateral agencies, large private sector corporates and family owned multi-generation businesses.

Tarek has a unique way of blending his in-depth understanding of the corporate and business world, with a mindfulness based approach to individual leadership transformation. His passion and energy is contagious and he has a talent for combining both eastern and western business philosophies in a way that is both creative and fun.

His interests include food, music, art, nature walks, Tai Chi, photography and humour. His love of music goes beyond listening to actually creating and recording and the adventurous part of him is indulged by exploring the world on two wheels both with and without an engine.
