Who We Are
MECHELANY ADVISORS FZ LLC is a Consultancy and Advisory firm based in the United Arab Emirates.
Mechelany Advisors was initially founded in 2010 in Geneva, Switzerland, and subsequently re-located to the Middle East to become Mechelany Advisors FZ LLC, based in the United Arab Emirates.
Proven expertise at developing financial institutions
Our team benefits from 110 years of cumulative experience in the financial markets as bankers, institutional money managers, fund managers and macro-economic researchers
Our consultancy services are supported by 36 years of business development and asset management in C-suite, board and partner positions at major financial institutions around the world, running banks, asset management companies and representative offices in jurisdictions as diverse as New York, London, Paris, Geneva, Monaco, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai, Istanbul and Athens.
Besides the growing complexity of the corporate, technological, ethical and regulatory challenges of the financial world, our extended experience at dealing with Central banks, Sovereign funds and large institutional clients in the GCC, the USA, Latin America and Europe gives us an edge in our business development and structuring mandates.
Our expertise in the financial markets spans from managing money for Institutional clients in fixed income, currencies and equities to market making and arbitrage, managing hedge funds, developing private banking operations and structuring and managing pension funds.
In 2006, our Japanese hedge fund ranked 2nd best performer in Japan and in 2007 our Chinese Hedge fund was ranked 2nd best performing hedge fund in the world, leading Bank of China to acquire our business in 2008.
Bringing the UAE closer to Asia and China
Our commitment to the UAE dates back to 1984 when we were managing funds for Sovereign funds and Central Banks of the region. Our team’s constant presence in the region enabled us to witness the phenomenal success of the UAE under the guidance of their visionary Rulers, leading us to make the UAE our permanent home.
From managing teams in Japan and Hong Kong in the 1980s to starting visiting China as early as 1989 and investing there as early as 1994, we have developed an expertise of Asia spanning the three decades that saw the region emerge as the largest economic zone of the world.
Our 30-years’ experience of investing in and working with China has given us an in-depth knowledge of China’s cultural, political and economic landscape. As the only non-Chinese individual to have run a banking subsidiary of a Chinese State-owned bank, we had the privilege to gain a unique insight of the intricacies of the Chinese political system, its social and economic eco-system and their efficiency.
Building bridges between the GCC and China is one of the challenges of the coming decades and one of the missions of Mechelany Advisors.
Advisory Services backed by Research
Mechelany Advisors act as consultants to Private and Public Pension Funds, Family offices, Trusts and foundations for the structuring of their investment schemes and their dynamic asset allocation process, providing an independent source of research and input. These services are provided through tailor-made consultancy mandates and positions on Investment Councils.
Mechelany Advisors also act as sub-advisors to fund management companies for the proviso of macro-economic research for investment products and investment funds. These services are provided through tailor-made research and advisory mandates.
What makes our services different is that our advisory services are backed by strong macro and micro economic in-house research capabilities. Advising institutional clients requires a holistic vision of the global macro-economic scene, forensic analysis of investment opportunities and strong behavioural analytical skills.
Our team has been managing money, advising clients and analysing the financial markets every day of the past 36 years going through the ebbs and flows of the global financial markets.
We have managed money through the great disinflation cycle, the emergence of the Asian Tigers and of the oil-rich GCC, the fall of Communism, the greatest globalisation phenomenon ever and the digital revolution, all powerful drivers of the world economic growth and development of the financial markets.
We also lived through the 1987 crash, the 1989 Japanese bubble bursting, the 1990 emerging markets debt crisis, the Dotcom bubble, the 2008 Financial crisis, and the current COVID disruptions.
Our total independence enables us to have an out-of-the-box approach within a systematic and exhaustive institutional analytical framework.
Through its website, Mechelany Advisors brings its research and investment ideas to its clients in a fully transparent way. Through its Model Portfolio, Mechelany Advisors implements its analytical conclusions and investment ideas in a fully transparent way, demonstrating its added value over the years.
