Business owner approach towards investments
ACML adopts a business owner mindset towards investments, an approach informed by lessons learned from managing family money and owning/operating family businesses.
Prior to founding Alphyn Capital Management, Samer Hakoura worked at his family's investment office in London and then managed various family investments in the Turks & Caicos which included the country's main supermarket chain, where he developed processes and systems to enable rapid expansion of the business, a waste management business that won the national recycling contract, a marina, and several real estate developments. Samer started his career at Deutsche Bank in London, taking part in over $11 billion in M&A and financing transactions. Samer holds an MBA from the Wharton School of Business and an MCHEM from Oxford University.
Samer applies lessons from managing those businesses to his selection of attractive businesses in the public markets.
While all investments are subject to risk of loss, ACML believes this approach reduces the risk of permanent impairment to client capital while affording it the opportunity to grow.
