Sulaiman Al Fahim

The CEO of Abu Dhabi-based Hydra Properties is currently in the spotlight for his role in the takeover of Manchester City. Predictably, his contacts are spread across the world.

Sulaiman Al Fahim, often called the “Donald Trump of Abu Dhabi,” started Hydra Properties in 2005, and within two years the company had launched over $2bn worth of projects. The 31-year-old went into the business quite early, coming from a family engaged in real estate.

Al Fahim hosts “The Hydra Executives,” an Arab version of Trump’s “The Apprentice,” which offers the winner a prize of $1m to invest in property. A chess champion, he announced the project of an International Chess City in Dubai, worth around $2.6bn in 2004 when he was the chief executive of Dubai Projects.

With a Ph.D. in real estate investment from the US, he is currently the face of the Abu Dhabi take-over of Manchester City, and most recently announced that he is prepared to make a $237m bid for Cristiano Ronaldo during the January transfer window.
