License, Risk Management and Governance

ADC – Al Dhabi Capital Limited is licensed to provide asset management services by Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).

ADGM is a catalyst for the growth of the financial services sector in Abu Dhabi and the UAE, helping to harness the inherent strengths of the Abu Dhabi economy. It sets high standards of entry but provides licensed companies with a world-class business environment and support, including strong legal, judicial and regulatory oversight.

We have a strong and comprehensive Risk Management Framework, supported by procedures to measure and monitor key market, credit and other risks, and we are committed to the highest ethical standards. We are honest and transparent in our relationships with our clients and partners and we benchmark ourselves against global best practice rules, set by such bodies as the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.

Our governance requires us to monitor VaR parameters at portfolio, industry, country and stock levels.  Other key parameters include standard deviation and key performance ratios. Portfolio diversification is an essential element of our risk management process.  So too is liquidity.  Limits are placed on illiquid stocks in portfolios, which are regularly stress tested.
