Aqeel Karim Dhedhi, a strong man and a robust tycoon

Aqeel-Karim-Dhedhi

How it all started for Aqeel Karim Dhedhi

However, the world compliments him for being a self-made and self-dignified man. His own take on himself is the complete opposite. For AKD it all started with his father being his life tutor. He himself in an interview for some web news said, and we quote” I am not self-made, all I am is because of my father. We have our difference earlier in life, he wanted to restrict me towards studies and I have no interest in that. But my father never left me, even when I was stubborn. I have gained all my practical experience by being under my father.”

Family business status, pre-partitioned

Haji Abdul Kareem, father of Aqeel Karim Dhedhi has his business expanded to Colombo and Chittagong even. Their business categories lie from the stock market, gold future, textiles, and engineers. With all the glory of being called industrialist, HAR and sons, enjoy the autonomy of having a preference share hold of the kathiyawari industry.

AKD thanks his father’s far visionary, which forced them to migrate and shift everything prior to the partition. In 1946, a year earlier than partition AHR was already on the Pakistani side of the sub-continent. All of which work out to be in their favor.

They manage to maintain a name and brand in constructions, imports and exports right after coming to Pakistan. And we all know their success from that point on.

Being so indulged in business, how does he manage a private personal life?

As a quite shock, AKD has nothing under his control. All of his business is being controlled by his daughters. Where his eldest daughter is looking after, AKD Securities, his other two daughters are responsible for AKD Investments and Constructions, respectively. He himself claimed to only intervene when needed and rest for the whole day (if he can).

How does he see his achievements?

From one of his many ones on one interview, AKD himself called them the biggest idiot, who thinks he has everything and has achieved it all. He sure has a different sense of work ethics in him, with his father being his role model. Who even at the death bed was so active and energetic that, AKD himself wants the same for himself. In his eyes, he has done nothing extra and his journey of success and struggle is going to be a lifetime venture.

 

Any tips for the newcomers?

Aqeel Kareem Dhedi has been a student of his father’s clever vision. A lot of his stock hacks and tips revolve around his early days learning, that he achieved formally from HAR. For the newcomers however he has some really interesting tips.

One of the most popular traits he suggests to almost everyone is to be a value buyer and not a speculator. His father once told him, that the key to success lies in being a great investor only, and not in being a critic speculator. According to him, newcomers should focus on the basics first.
