- APQ Global, the emerging markets income company, has increased its international advisory council with the appointment of Al-Wadhah Al-Adawi and Ken Veksler, who will focus on Middle East and Gulf countries and global currency markets respectively.

Al-Adawi has over 16 years' experience in equities trading and portfolio management, and most recently served as a senior vice-president and a portfolio manager for emerging markets in Latin America/Europe, the Middle East and Asia at Harvard Management Company, Inc.

Veksler has two decades of experience dealing directly in the foreign exchange interbank markets and asset management sectors.

APQ Global's international advisory council chairman Tania Rotherwick said: 'Since being established only eight months ago, our IAC has almost doubled in size, providing significant support to APQ Global as it continues to seek income from emerging economies and markets under significant political pressure.

'I am confident that with their strong EM backgrounds, both Ken and Wadhah will be valuable additions to our global network of investment professionals as they continue to identify opportunities for APQ Global.'
