Best Headhunters for PE / SWF opps in the UAE (Abu Dhabi & Dubai)

Hey guys - looking to see if anyone has worked with some solid headhunters for private equity / SWF placements into the UAE (Abu Dhabi & Dubai). So far, I've identified PER, Pinpoint Partners and Arkesden as potential firms to work with. I am based in the US, and understand that London-based recruiters are typically more active in the region. Does anyone have any suggestions for firms I can consider reaching out to? Thank you all.

Headhunters in the Middle East (Originally Posted: 01/31/2017)

So I am an ex banker who moved two years ago to a real estate private equity based in London - 7 years in total experience.
Was wondering if you could share any good headhunting firm or person to get in touch with for a move to the MENA region (preferably Dubai) in either investment banking or private equity (preferably real estate)
