The Al Dar Capital Group is currently one of the leading institutional investors in various hedge funds, with approximately US$ 3 billion under management, of which US$ 1 billion constitutes its own investments. The Company regularly invests a significant amount of its own funds in different hedge funds and stipulates exclusive standards with respect to risk management, which advantageously differentiates the Al Dar Capital Group from other fund-of-hedge-fund providers and allows us to consistently achieve outstanding investment results for our shareholders and investors.
The objective of the Fund of Funds program of the Al Dar Capital Group, through a diversified portfolio of investments in hedge funds and managed accounts, is to achieve attractive returns, on a risk-adjusted basis and over a medium-term period, with a low correlation to traditional and other alternative asset classes. The program offers clients a selection of Funds of Hedge Funds with varying risk/return profiles.
In addition, the Al Dar Capital Group is growing an emerging manager platform. We currently offer five emerging manager funds to clients on a joint venture basis, giving them access to new, upcoming managers with specific strategies.
Based in London, the hedge funds team of the Al Dar Capital Group consists of highly skilled professionals, including hedge fund experts and risk analysts. The experts of our hedge funds team determine strategic asset allocations, select the best third-party fund managers and monitor the performance of various managers and investment strategies in order to ensure that the program's risk/return objectives are met. In order to achieve this goal, they draw on sophisticated measures of risk and return, environmental and industry knowledge, and stress tests on individual portfolios.
The Fund of Funds Program complements the Al Dar Capital Group’s Private Equity, Venture Capital and Real Estate Investment by offering further diversification to investors who prefer a more liquid form of investment.
