AES International welcomes QROPS specialist to Qatar


International financial services organisation AES International has announced the arrival of QROPS specialist Adrian Lyons to join its growing consultancy team in Qatar. With vast experience of financial services, his appointment represents a significant step for AES as it looks to inspire global change in the standards of financial advice.

AES International's CEO Sam Instone commented, 'we are delighted that Adrian has decided to partner with AES. From the outset we have been impressed not only by the quality of advice he gives to clients, but also his progressive approach towards positive change. As AES International leads the global transition to new model advice, financial consultants with Adrian's qualities will be seen as pioneers of our highly-differentiated approach.'

Lyons joins AES with over 20 years of corporate experience. Having spent six years with fidelity investments' offshore operations from 1994-2000 as their European Sales Manager, he went on to work with the largest financial advisory firm in China, working as a senior regional associate. With a wealth of international experience, Lyons also has full international qualifications in derivates, fixed notes, lump sum investments, banking and insurance.

Passionate about improving client outcomes, Lyons aims to act as a catalyst for change in Qatar, seeking to progress AES International's commitment to export UK best practice regardless of jurisdiction and uphold the organisation's core values of integrity, knowledge, transparency, professionalism and respect. 

Away from the workplace Lyons is a fully trained scuba diving instructor and has also travelled across the breadth of Asia by motorcycle. For more information on his appointment, or to find out about AES International's services in Qatar, contact us at
