Francis Menassa, the CEO and founder of JAR Capital, resides in Oxshott, Surrey. He has an LLB (Hons) in Law from the University of Buckingham. His successful private banking career has lasted over 20 years and is still going strong today. It all started with a job at Merrill Lynch, which Francis Menassa started in 1996. Then, in 2001, he began working at Credit Suisse. Seven years later, he and his senior partner at Credit Suisse decided to go independent. They created a wealth and asset management firm called Plurimi Capital.
With many years of experience under his belt, Francis Menassa founded JAR Capital in 2014. This independent wealth and asset management firm is based in St. James’s, and Francis Menassa is currently its CEO. In addition, he is an avid investor, investing in businesses in a variety of fields such as fintech, fine art, aviation, pharma, and real estate.
Francis Menassa believes in the importance of giving back and making a positive impact. He often supports UK-based charities such as DEBRA, an organization that benefits suffers of the skin disorder Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). He has supported DEBRA for almost a decade. Within the past year, he sponsored a four-man team that completed what has been called “the toughest row in the world.” This journey across the Atlantic raised money for Over the Wall (a charity that helps children with serious illnesses) and St. Luke’s Cancer Centre. Francis Menassa is also a sponsor of Rashed Ghanem, a Lebanese F4 racer.
