The UAE's Al-Futtaim family: from exile to wealth

Majid Al-Futtaim Business overviewAl-Futtaim is one of the biggest names in Dubai and, increasingly, the wider Middle East’s retail, automotive and property development sectors.  World-class brands, retailers, car manufacturers and property developers in the Middle East will almost certainly find themselves a competitor or partner of a Futtaim business.
 

Published May 2013, this report takes a close look at the family and:

•    examines where it came from and where it is going;

•    considers its historical roots and the sources of its significant wealth;

•    presents its major assets, providing profiles of its businesses and biographies of its key personalities.

The report also highlights the risks and opportunities associated with the Al-Futtaim.  It explains how politics and business combined to create an immense family fortune.  It reveals, for example, how the family played a key role in infrastructure projects that have defined Dubai (such as the Maktoum Bridge), and continues to be involved in mega-projects today.

Dissecting the two huge Al-Futtaim business portfolios – looking not just at assets, but at the processes and dynamics driving the businesses forward – the report gives insights valuable not only to those who do business in Dubai, but also to anyone interested in the socioeconomic structure of the emirate, and the ways of doing business in the Gulf.

Progress in Hodeidah but warnings of trouble elsewhere in Yemen

In United Nations-backed talks in Hodeidah in mid-February, a detailed programme of action was agreed to implement a Houthi withdrawal from the port city – the first of the three areas of agreement at the Stockholm peace conference in December. The plan should allow a resumption of humanitarian operations at the port under UN supervision – a critical step if the famine sweeping Yemen is to be tackled – but progress remains painfully slow and Hodeidah remains just one part of a complex arena.
