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.
AKI’s operations span ten units under six business lines including healthcare, consumer goods, contracting, retail, fitness & lifestyle and automotive. Our footprint extends across the Middle East and Africa including the UAE, KSA, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Egypt, Jordan and Iraq.
Governance and compliance is an integral part of our corporate culture in establishing adherence to laws and internal regulations in all our business undertakings. Our commitment extends beyond merely understanding our regulatory commitments and encompasses aligning our actions with them, as an integral part of our daily operations.
