My personal journey through modern Iraq

Attending CWRU in 1986 at the height of the Iran-Iraq war and returning to a devastated country in 2003, Shwan Taha has witnessed some of the Middle East’s most profound changes.

He is the Founder of Melak Investments and Chairman of Rabee Securities, investment advisory firms concentrating on opportunities in Iraq and the broader region. With offices in Baghdad, Erbil, Sulaymaniyah, and Istanbul, Taha brings a unique perspective to the rapid changes which have shaken this important part of the world.
