The story of Al Faisal Holding’s growth and development reflects the same entrepreneurial vision, drive and innovative thinking that has seen the transformation of Qatar into one of the world’s strongest and fastest growing economies.
Originally created with a modest start-up capital in the 1960s as a small, local trading company, founder and Chairman H.E Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani, has over the past five decades built that business into one of Qatar’s largest privately held diversified groups with operations that are continuing to grow strongly across local, regional, and international markets and in many cases attracting significant foreign direct investment in the process.
The Group’s strategy is focused on sustained, profitable growth through diversification by identifying, evaluating, and exploiting complimentary market opportunities, both organically and in collaboration with world class, industry-leading partners. Today, its operations encompass a wide range of sectors including real estate, hospitality, trading, transport, education, and services, together with a range of investments that include its majority interest in Aamal Company Q.P.S.C, one of the largest companies listed on the Qatar Exchange with a particular focus on industrial manufacturing.
In 2003, Al Faisal Holding established Al Rayyan Tourism and Investment Company "ARTIC" as the investment arm in the hospitality sector. The expansion of Al Faisal Holding's hospitality and leisure business is a focus for the Group, which is in the course of building a high quality hotel portfolio in prime city locations across the MENA region, Europe and North America.
