The CEO of DAMAC is one of the main drivers of the UAE impressive growth in the past three decades. Apart from being part of the most expansive stage of Dubai growth, Hussain Sajwani has expanded his wings to other markets around the world, and more specifically in Asia and England. This expansion paints Hussain Sajwani as a brilliant and versatile investor and one of the best in our time. According to him, the property market is at his prime and exploiting this moment has always been one of his primary motivators. However, this niche has always been his passion since he was a student in the USA.
The journey to becoming one of the trendsetters in the property market has been one of the longest but one of the most exciting journeys according to him. He, however, contributes his earlier interests in investment to his upbringing where Hussain Sajwani confesses to being involved in family business. He, however, points out that investment in a professional level was not a reality until he was a student and later part of the USA workforce. The CEO of DAMAC points out that the USA working environment was critical in shaping his principles on business, deals and capitalizing on trends. These abilities according to him have always shaped his business moves and more importantly have made his business moves rational and profitable.
In addition to his experience in the USA business environment, he is a product of the best education. Since he is an Industrial Engineering graduate and later a graduate in economics, he has always approached business and property market from a fresh perspective. Hussain Sajwani has an unmatched understanding of numbers, especially where trends are involved. Due to this ability, he was able to understand that the Dubai expansion era lacked luxury hotels and properties. He has always been keen on investing in this particular market, even though most investors fear to invest in it.
Sajwani also is a perfect illustration of a hard-working professional. He points out that although his company is established, he still has tight schedules. These tight schedules keep him grounded on his investment goals.
