Founded in 1947, The Olayan Group is a privately held enterprise engaged in distribution, manufacturing, services, and investment.
In our home market of Saudi Arabia, we operate or actively participate in more than 40 companies, often in partnership with leading multinationals.
Internationally, we are global investors, with emphasis on both public and private equities and on fixed income securities.
The Olayan name stands for a powerful combination of corporate resolve, entrepreneurship, and an unflagging commitment to growth.
Our reputation is underpinned by two key factors. First, in terms of shareholder equity and sheer financial wherewithal, The Olayan Group ranks among the world’s largest privately held companies. Second, our international alliances are with many of the world’s best companies, and they have proven to be highly durable.
