New York, NY –
Securitize Capital, the digital asset management platform offering institutional-grade, tokenized funds, today announced Adil Abdulali has joined the firm as Managing Director, Head of Portfolio Management.
Since its inception as a subsidiary of digital asset securities firm Securitize in May 2021, Securitize Capital has launched five institutional-grade, tokenized funds, including the first two S&P indices to be tokenized, Bitcoin and USD Coin yield funds, as well as an ETH yield fund launched last week.
As Head of Portfolio Management, Adil is responsible for developing investment solutions for institutional investors using single strategy funds, as well as multi-strategy diversified approaches. He leads fund product design and structuring with David Hogan, who joined Securitize Capital as Managing Director and Head of Sales and Distribution in January.
Prior to joining Securitize Capital, Adil was the President and Chief Science Officer of Protege Partners, a premier institutional investor and seeder of private funds. Adil funded, launched and seeded dozens of hedge funds over the last 16 years across traditional, crypto and artificial intelligence investment strategies. Before moving to the buy-side, Adil managed multibillion-dollar structured credit and mortgage portfolios at JP Morgan, Nikko Securities, Nomura Securities and Barclays Capital. Adil holds a Master’s degree in Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania.
“Adil’s expertise and passion align with Securitize Capital’s mission of modernizing the asset management industry,” said Wilfred Daye, Head of Securitize Capital. “Adil brings an exceptional track record of over three decades in fund structuring, trading, portfolio management and investments.”
“Tokenized financial products, including crypto, are the most interesting and exciting alternative asset class,” Adil said. “There is no better place to develop crypto investment products than at the leading firm at the intersection of blockchain and finance. I look forward to making private funds accessible to a broader world of investors, increasing potential liquidity while remaining compliant with securities regulations.”
