Prince Alwaleed has been hailed as one of the world's most influential names in investing.
As a renowned international businessman and global investor, Prince Alwaleed has undoubtedly been immensely successful in building his personal fortune and creating a global business empire through his corporation – Kingdom Holding Company [KHC] – over the last four decades. His prominence as a businessman has officially been acknowledged by hundreds of publications, such as The New York Times and Time magazine, that labeled the Prince as the “Arabian Warren Buffett.”
Kingdom Holding Company was founded, and is chaired, by His Royal Highness Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, one of the world’s most extraordinary individuals. The grandson of two of the Arab world’s most noble and admired leaders – King Abdul-Aziz Alsaud, the founder and first ruler of modern Saudi Arabia, and His Excellency, Riad El Solh, Prime Minister and iconic statesman in Lebanon’s drive for independence – Prince Alwaleed is inspired and driven by the heritage of the uncommon achievements that define his family line.
Prince Alwaleed’s reputation as one of the world’s foremost investors is well earned and is the result of hard work, diligent research and the courage to accept the reasonable risk and to make bold moves when he is confident of the outcome. This fearless investment approach, rooted in meticulous evaluation by a top investment team, is a formula that has allowed Prince Alwaleed to transform a gift of thirty thousand dollars from his father into the tens of billions that KHC oversees today. The Prince is known as one of the world’s most intelligent and creative investors. He is the key asset at the center of KHC, providing the guiding vision and strategic direction that has brought it worldwide recognition.
