Hussain Sajwani is one of the world’s richest men, Sajwani owns 72% OF The Dumac Group which recently went public. The Dumac Group has a certifiable value that gives Sujwani a net worth of $3.2 billion. The Hussain Sajwani family are an influential family in the Dubai region. This area of the Middle East has undergone intense development and income growth. Sajwani and other Dubai movers and shakers have given the world an artificial residential island in the shape of a palm tree, an indoor ski facility, and the Burj Kalifa, the world’s tallest building.
Sajwani’s latest achievement is the Akoya Village a 964-acre residential complex 15 minutes from downtown Dubai. The Akoya Village community is composed of elegant modern villas, mansions, and apartments. It is built around a golf course bearing the Trump name; a name that is admired in Dubai, a nation that is known for opulence and overstatement, it is no wonder that the Trump brand resonates among the powerful elites of Dubai. It is here that the interior design is similar to that of the Trump Tower and Mar-a-Lago where ornate, gold-leafed, French Regency-style furniture and accessories abound.
Sajwani was not born to luxury. His father was a trader at a local kiosk and his mother went door-to-door selling household merchandise. From the dinner conversations of his parents, the young Hussain got a taste for business. Hussain was a promising student and received a scholarship to study abroad in the United States of America in the state of Washington. Once he achieved his Bachelor’s degree he was on his way to financial success. Sajwani returned to Dubai and in 1982 he founded Damac Holding Ltd-Dubai. He sits on numerous boards including Oman United Insurance Co. and Al Jazeira Services Company. Sajwani is the Damac owner and enjoys his life in Dubai and on the world stage.
