The fund, managed by ADCM Altus Investment Management, said the Takaful stake buy was motivated by the belief that the insurance sector is “poised for considerable growth, driven by increasing contributions, favorable regulatory landscape, and new product opportunities”.

It added would help the firm take advantage of “strong market dynamics” and growth opportunities.

Goldilocks was launched in 2015 by Abu Dhabi Financial Group with the goal of becoming an activist investor in listed equities to unlock value.

It has targeted firms it considers undervalued or in financial trouble.
