Michael Strachan is the company’s founder and has more than 40 years investment experience. He developed the approach used by IAM Advisory whilst one of the original senior investment managers in the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) and subsequently as advisor to the State General Reserve Fund for the Government of Oman’s two major Sovereign Wealth Funds. ADIA was unique at the time in its development of a structure that combined both externally-managed specialists and internal investment managers – a situation that required a rigorous framework for developing investment strategy of the total portfolio and subsequent monitoring. This background underlies IAM Advisory’s own development of flexible unconstrained guidelines which allow fund managers to manage money actively whilst controlling risk centrally.
Before working for ADIA and Government of Oman Michael worked as an investment manager with Guardian Royal Exchange in London.
Michael is a graduate of the University of Kent, Canterbury.
