Amine Benali, CFA
Amine is an investment advisor representative under Westland Gate Capital, LLC., a seasoned veteran of the investment management industry, a business development and capital advisory professional, and an educator and mentor of future impact capital allocators.
He spent his formative years in eastern Morocco in the border town of Oujda, where entrepreneurship had been a necessity, and where community members often banded together to support those in need. While fortunate and grateful for the opportunity to build a future in the United States, he has remained committed to the principles of cooperation and community service as the primary means of ensuring social harmony.
Amine's professional life has revolved around the capital markets as a manager of multi-billion dollar global portfolios, and as an advisor to businesses, community development financial institutions (CDFIs), and impact funds. He is a faithful student of the valuation cycles and a strong believer in value as the cornerstone of all investment decisions. Value manifests itself when good unexplored businesses meet robust due diligence.
Amine has dedicated his academic life to Development Economics and poverty alleviation. He is a professor of Social Enterprise and Impact Investing at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, where he feels privileged to lecture and mentor the future leaders of the capital allocation business.
