Ex-Deutsche staffer's big career bet may just be working out.

Deutsche Bank - Foyer Bridge

With Iran and world powers said to have signed a nuclear deal, Xanyar Kamangar’s big career bet may just be working out.

Bloomberg News reports that with start up capital of $10m, Kamangar ditched his job at Deutsche Bank’s EMEA technology and telecom team in London after eight years to set up advisory and investment firm Griffon Capital in September.

The rationale: to capitalize on deals and foreign investment into Iran if sanctions are lifted.

'For the first two weeks after leaving Deutsche Bank I couldn’t sleep', the Tehran native said July 9 from Dubai. 'I’d wake up in the middle of the night thinking ‘what have I done?’ But after those two weeks, there’s not been a single day when I’ve not thought that this was the right thing to do'.
