About Us

A new breed of family business

Our roots go back over four decades when Dr. Saad F. Al Khayyat founded our first business with the goal to build Al Khayyat Investments (AKI) as a new breed of family business. Today we work across a diverse portfolio of businesses and partnerships, touching many parts of people’s lives to bring them the things that matter.

We approach everything we do with a spirit of smart agility, an entrepreneurial energy and an open to opportunity attitude, driven by our people, working together to build a better and more sustainable future. At every step, every touchpoint and every interaction we strive for excellence, nurturing long-term relationships through integrity, trust and a commitment to delivering beyond the expected.
