Abu Dhabi Fund Appoints Eckersley to Oversee Internal Equities

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, appointed Gregory Eckersley as global head of its internal equities department, overseeing portfolios, risk management and the due-diligence process.

Eckersley joined ADIA from 1770 Capital Partners, a fund he jointly started in 2011 that focuses on global energy, mining and commodities, the Abu Dhabi-based sovereign wealth fund said in an e-mailed statement today.

Eckersley, who was employed at AllianceBernstein LP for 16 years and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, will report to Mohamed Darwish Al Khoori, executive director of the internal equities department.

ADIA, established in 1976, manages global investments including equities, fixed income, real estate and private equity to provide sustained long-term financial returns.
