Shaugh AlShafei

Private Equity Advisor

Shaugh is an experienced investment professional with over 15 years of hands-on experience in the fields of private equity, venture capital and investment banking in the Middle East.

Shaugh started off her career at Bank ABC’s Investment Banking Division and later moved on to VC Bank where she managed the bank’s and region’s first venture capital fund, gaining deep insight and knowledge in pre and post-acquisition activities. In 2014, Shaugh joined PineBridge ME and was a key member in the Investment & Portfolio Management Team where she oversaw deals across the MENA region including Turkey and the UAE. She has worked in various industries including healthcare, specialty chemicals’ manufacturing and specialty retail. Being a natural risk risk-taker and entrepreneur at heart, it was only natural for Shaugh to bring together all her past experiences and venture out to create a business of her own – GETaBOUQUET – a highly successful online marketplace for flowers. She remains a shareholder in this business.

Shaugh is Bahrain’s first female MBA holder from Said Business School at Oxford University and holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from McGill University in Canada where she majored in Finance.
