Al Khayyat Investments (AKI) is a new breed of family business. We work across a diverse portfolio of businesses and partnerships, touching every part of people’s lives to bring them the things that matter.
Originally founded in 1982 by Dr. Saad F. Al Khayyat, AKI has grown from a pharma company in Dubai to a multibillion dollar diversified business across the Middle East.
Dr Saad’s founding entrepreneurial vision, people-first approach and passionate belief in family values continue to be at the core of AKI today, driving the business forward and guiding how we think and operate.
Our DNA is proudly rooted in the core building blocks of family, guiding how we think, operate and deliver. This foundation compels us forward and encourages us to support and inspire each other, taking a long-term view and being truly invested in the relationships that we have.
