Real people, real stories – Business with a community impact: leading the change in Saudi economics
Since joining Abdul Latif Jameel Investments in 2016, Fahad Aljomaih has seen the group’s impressive work first-hand.
After studying in the U.K. and the United States, Mr Aljomaih embarked on an exciting financial services career. His first role, as an equity analyst, saw him based in Riyadh – and it is from the Saudi Arabian capital that he has now acquired a decade of experience.
Mr Aljomaih, Head of Investments at Abdul Latif Jameel Investments, says the team spirit, work ethic and positive attitude at Abdul Latif Jameel has been a key factor in its success. He is determined to capitalize on those strengths to ensure Abdul Latif Jameel Investments helps Saudi Arabia achieve its Vision 2030 ambitions of attracting more foreign investment and expanding the country’s economic base.
“Strong corporate governance is one of the many things that give Abdul Latif Jameel such an excellent reputation across Saudi Arabia. It is a reputation that is well deserved.
“From government bodies down to local communities, we are trusted to act in the best interests of the country and its people. We can deliver on that trust because teamwork is at the heart of Abdul Latif Jameel’s culture. We work hard together, and we achieve success together. Nobody is bigger than the organization: we all make a contribution to help the sum be greater than its parts.
“Abdul Latif Jameel Investments is an ambitious company and signing our first partnership agreement with a leading Swiss service provider was an exciting moment. The knowledge, insight and skills of our senior management team has helped to inform our investment strategy and set our investment goals. Furthermore, the management team has created a motivational environment that inspires us all to achieve our ambitions.”
