CASABLANCA

En résumé

Based in Casablanca, I m a Tax and Financial transactions partner at CAPITAL EXPERTS, a boutique consulting firm dedicated to serve the needs of investors, foreign and local, in the Moroccan, the MENA and few African markets.

I m licensed Certified Accountant (CPA license obtained in France), trained in the Moroccan, the American (US CPA sections passed in New York State) and the French Taxation & corporate regulations.

Being flexible in the three systems above is a unique opportunity to better understand the single investor needs and propose in-context solutions.

As a tax expert, I assist world-class investors (Investment funds, Energy Oil & Gaz, Hospitality and Health care Groups), addressing cross-border taxation issues, implementing optimized tax operations and transfer pricing policies & BEPS rules.

Assisting distressed companies is an important mission I work on as well. I serve as a Trustee-in-bankruptcy in the Moroccan commercial courts, entrusted with managing companies heavily indebted (debts reaching dozen millions dollars) throughout their restructuring process.


Pro-bono missions:

Developing the doing business in Morocco comes with competitive local investment laws. Hence, I organize/ animate with the contribution of the Commercial Law Development Program (a division of the US department of commerce) several conferences and workshops on best practices in insolvency and investors' protection, for the benefit of Moroccan commercial judges and attorneys.

I m a contributor to the doing business annual survey administered by the World Bank as well.

In June 2019, the African Congress Of Accountants ACOA was held in Marrakech Morocco. I was honored to be part of the scientific committee having prepared during a year and half the program of this continental event.

Other interests and Academia:
- Investing in Stocks with a long term horizon
- Teaching business schools students management, finance and Audit courses.
