The AKD Group, owned by Aqeel Karim Dhedhi, is one of the most well-known companies in all of Pakistan. This organization is older than the country it has been serving since the beginning of time in Pakistan.
The chairman of AKD Group, Aqeel Karim Dhedhi is a man we all have seen on our screens- even more around the whole country disguised by his projects. The man has immense respect and gratitude for his father, Abdul Karim Dhedhi who started this company all the way back then before the partition of India. AKD mentions their pre-partition business in Junagarh, where they used to deal with equity, commodity, textile mills, etc. They also had some business in Columbia back then, relating to the textile. When AKD speaks of his father, his eyes glisten with pride and love. It’s clear that everything the man is- he owes it to his father who was his mentor, his role model, his advisor and his teacher all his life.
Aqeel Karim Dhedhi is a man who has many dimensions. He’s very open about his personal life- growing up, how hard it was for him to stick to education and how he did not waste further time doing something he never wanted to do and started working with his father at a really young age. He had completed his matric only when he officially joined his father- under his supervision and guidance he grew out to be the man he is now. He always enjoyed spending time at the office, with his father where he would teach him something new everything regarding their business affairs. His father was the person who suggested him to pursue investment after a little blunder he once made. Look where that advice has got him now! The whole country is raving about it. AKD has gotten immense success when it comes to Construction, Stock exchange, Textile Mills, Online trading, security services and a lot more.
Aqeel Dhedhi, having four brothers and four sisters- is the only one amongst his father’s children who have taken over this company to new heights of success. He now runs this business along with his four children.
Aqeel Karim Dhedhi when talks of his hobbies, he raves about cricket, golfing, swimming, horse riding, and all other adventurous activities. He’d been an athlete, but after an ankle injury, he had to put a hold to all those hobbies.
The online trading facility provided by the AKD group is the first of it’s kind—and he is extremely proud of being the one who brought it to this country. He mentions how even the most professional people didn’t have enough faith in this project of his and how everyone warned him that this was going to backfire- now he gleams with joy as he tells us just how he proved them wrong. This service has totally changed the game, just not for Pakistan but the whole world. People have made millions with the services he provides regarding Investments and it has been extremely beneficial for everyone.
He thanks his parents and Allah almighty repeatedly for all his success. If this doesn’t inspire you, what will?
