Braving financial slump, Dr  Prasad mustered enough courage and inspired himself to establish Que Capital in 2013. He established Que Capital Limited, an independent financial services boutique based in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA). He quit a lucrative investment banking job with Morgan Stanley, to explore the unchartered world of entrepreneurship.


During such a time Dr Prasad  stayed confident of the global markets capability to bounce back and reposed tremendous faith in his abilities and skills in financial management and understanding of the markets. It was from here that his childhood dream of entrepreneurship took offer, and he took the plunge. He has successfully invested in many ventures as an angel investor in tech, healthcare, food & beverages, and hospitality sectors.

He is one of the key members of the team is behind the issuance of the world’s first step-up Sukuk Bond (Islamic Convertible Bond) worth $3.5 billion for DP World to acquire P&O but he still describes himself as ‘an accidental banker’. No wonder, blue-chip corporates and global ultra-high net worth individuals seek his advice for investing their billions and taking their companies to next level.

“My success mantra has been holistic positivity about myself and everyone I interact with. I have been passionately obsessed with the idea of building and maintaining honest relationships, without any business interest,” says he.


Dr. Prasad believes that when relationships are built on the foundation of honesty, business happens on its own. This has led to a global network of clients and business associates who have stuck with him through thick and thin for the last 25 years.
