The Olayan Group’s unofficial motto is to do better tomorrow what we do best today. Ours is a culture of curiosity and the pursuit of excellence. We build and cultivate our investment team around this approach.
Our investment professionals are based in the U.S., Europe, and Saudi Arabia. They communicate regularly by audio and video conference calls and through office visits to share information, ideas, and strategies. The international team also convenes as a whole every two years in a retreat setting for strategic planning and team building. This fosters close professional bonds across geography.
Our in-house analysts do their own research and rigorous due diligence. They also have high-level access to top outside financial, economic, and investment expertise.
Our analysts specialize by asset class, sector, and geographic focus. For listed equities, private equities, and real estate, our investment professionals in our New York office cover North, Central and South America while our London office focuses on Europe and the Far East. The Riyadh office looks to the Middle East, North Africa and Southwest Asia.
The Group’s international investment activity is supported by offices in Athens, Luxembourg, and Vienna. The Athens office manages the Group’s treasury, foreign exchange operations, and a global fixed-income portfolio. The Group’s international banking relationships are also managed out of this office.
