Hamid Reza Abdollahi lived in New England from 1979 to 2016. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Boston University and completed his graduate degree in Business Management from Cambridge College. For over 20 years, Hamid worked in various mid-level management positions in the Banking system, including the Chair of Diversity and Inclusion for Sovereign Bank in New England. During that time, he took part in bank expansions (Mergers and acquisitions) and experienced the issues that eventually affected our banking system from 2007 to 2010. Due to those experiences, he has been searching for an alternative financial institution that not only offers the community members choices to invest in socially responsible products, but also functions as an institution with superior moral and ethical standards. He learned about financial institutions that offer socially responsible products as an addition to their mix, because of the demand in the market. However, they did not consider reinvestment in the faith-based communities that seek socially responsible qualities from their financial institutions. Sharia Portfolio ended Hamid’s search where he is pleased to join in and serve the community and, above all, the God.
