The Network of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahayan

The Network of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahayan

Relatively unknown in the international media, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahayan’s recent dealings with football club Manchester City have elevated him to status of household name amongst football fans worldwide. The prince, who bought the Premiership club from former Thai Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra, is the fifth of nineteen sons of Sheikh Zayed, the UAE’s first president. Educated in the US, Sheikh Mansour’s portfolio of investments, though varied, have proven to be extremely lucrative. Barely seven months after he bought an eleven percent stake in Barclays, Sheikh Mansour made a profit estimated at £1.4 billion on selling his stake in the bank.

When he isn’t sealing profitable investment deals, the prince tends to more local matters in his capacity as the Minister for U.A.E. Presidential Affairs and the chairman of Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Company, the Emirates Horseracing Authority and First Gulf Bank. Quite possibly one of the Gulf’s shrewdest businessmen, Sheikh Mansour has admitted that he has had “a lifelong passion” for football and all things sports related. In fact, Sheikh Mansour, who used to play football in his younger days, was greatly involved in the running of Abu Dhabi’s Al Jazeera club. Plus he’s said to be a highly accomplished horseman. A closer look at the prince reveals a network as varied as his interests. Click ‘next’ to see Sheikh Mansour’s network.
