About Me

Suhail Ahmad




Welcome to my professional blog.

A collection of my insights, articles and reports which I find helpful for my clients and partners. Helping us better understand the world of business and finance in the new digital economy.

About me
I’m an entrepreneurial leader with over 25 years of experience in the private and public capital markets. I’ve worked in wealth management, corporate advisory and investment banking as well as having founded and co-founded half a dozen businesses in financial and digital technology. I’m passionate about growth, value creation and sustainability.


  • Masters in Business Administration (with Distinction) – Edinburgh Business School (UK)
  • Chartered Investment Manager – Canadian Securities Institute (Canada)
  • Bachelor of Arts in Economics – University of Calgary (Canada)

What I do
I’m a trusted adviser and partner to senior executives and entrepreneurs worldwide. Helping them leverage technology to solve money, management and growth challenges. A strong believer that you should take advice from people who have “been there done that”, I provide candid and honest insights from my hands-on experience of starting, scaling and investing and exiting businesses.

Career summary
After finishing my Economics degree with a focus on macroeconomics and industrial organization, I became a wealth and financial advisor representing an RBC Financial Group company and later signing broker agreements with other investment firms such as AGF Funds, TD Asset Management and Templeton Funds. In 2004, I joined a boutique private equity and merchant bank and two years later become the Chief Executive of its Islamic investment banking subsidiary, Ittihad Securities Inc. based in Toronto.

In 2010, I left the industry, moving to the UK and pursuing my passion for fintech. I co-founded Infinnet Technologies in 2012 and developed the SiAlpha quantitative investment analytics system which helped investors make more money with less risk. The SiAlpha IP was sold to an investment company in which I continue to have a significant equity stake.

I’ve had the privilege to speak at numerous international conferences sharing my insights on financial technology, investing and entrepreneurship.
