During the fourteen years at ADIA, Mr Karim was involved in the design and launch of the first ADIA external hedge fund programme for the Institution.This programme has become the single largest investment programme of its kind in the global hedge fund industry.
The objective of this portfolio was to generate absolute returns that were stable and consistent bearing no correlation to classical investments.Allocations to managers in the portfolio were substantial and today a number of them are the largest hedge fund managers in the industry.As the Senior Investment Manager at ADIA, Mr Karim was responsible for its investment policies, strategies and asset allocation in the Alternative Investment area.In this capacity he has actively conducted extensive levels of 'due diligence' on hedge fund managers.His role involved portfolio construction using quantitative and qualitative methods, and deciding upon the asset allocation for all of ADIA's investments in the Alternative Investment area.The success of this programme was the direct result of creating a portfolio of hedge fund managers using both 'long' and 'short' volatility strategies to generate an attractive 'alpha' for the institution.Mr Karim managed this programme until the summer of 1995 when he left the UAE to return to the UK and set up QCM.
