The specialist active fixed income manager ADGI moves towards an outsource model for enhanced oversight and access to market-leading technologies as it selects Apex for its ability to deliver local service complemented by global capabilities.

ADGI offers separately managed accounts and funds for emerging market debt local currency, emerging market debt hard currency, MENA fixed income and global sukuk. With offices in over 40 locations worldwide, including three across the UAE, Apex delivers a broad range of products across the full value chain of a fund and across all domiciles.
David Rothon, CEO at AD Global Investors, commented on the reason for choosing Apex, “At ADGI we employ international best practices combined with best-in-class systems to give clients the highest-quality business infrastructure. Collaborating with Apex is a natural fit for us to ensure that we implement robust oversight and operational processes to support our own internal infrastructure. The Apex team’s local service was important to us and we will look to leverage their local expertise to deliver an enhanced service to our own clients”.
Craig Roberts, Regional Managing Director for Apex MENA said, “We have a lot of experience with ADGM managers and are looking forward to utilising that in support of ADGI following their successful bid to be granted a license by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of ADGM.
