Coming to its tenth edition, the Middle East Family Office Investment Summit is a firm fixture in the calendar of the most prominent and influential families in the region – as well as those who want to do business with them.

Family Offices
Me Family Office Summit Welcome

Welcome to our exciting 10th edition of the Middle East Family Office Investment Summit. If you have joined us before, prepare for a celebratory event like no other we have held so far. And if this is your first time joining us, you’ve picked the best possible time to start coming to our regular networking events.

Alea Global Group is a family office with a long and prestigious history in the Middle East. As a family office ourselves, we are part of a global family office network, and our membership of this network means that decision-makers and family office members themselves attend our events, rather than simply their representatives. This means our events are of huge instrumental value when it comes to creating new business relationships, and many collaborations between family offices and service providers have sprung from one of our events.

The packed program for this event includes global topics that affect family offices and those who want to do business with them. We will hear from experts who are leaders in their field, we will gain insight into topics that directly affect all of our individual projects, and we will share our opinions with each other in a relaxed open forum. More than 100 single family offices from the region are scheduled to attend this summit, and there will be a 70:30 split of family offices to service providers, ensuring quality face-to-face time with the people who matter to your business.

And of course we have built our regular informal networking breaks into the programme, giving all delegates the opportunity to meet and talk with one another multiple times over the course of two days. With inspiration provided by the program, and a high quality and exclusive delegate list, it is during these breaks that some of the most exciting partnerships begin. 

So join us for this very special celebration, and we look forward to hearing your resulting success stories in the near future.

Our story

The Al Duaij family office has a long and glorious history in Kuwait as one of the most prominent and respected business forces.

The Al Duaij family business, Alea Global Group, has won several awards including The European Award, and the CEO Award two years running. Head of the family office, Mohammad Al Duaij, has won the Man of the Year award for his work building international business relationships.

Through their networks, they have formed strong personal and professional relationships with other family offices across the globe, all sharing much common ground and a willingness to work together.

Mohammad Al Duaij, has been a conference speaker for the past 12 years, appearing at events all over the world. It was during his time touring the conference circuit that Mohammad noticed a gap in the market for events specific to family offices and those who want to meet them.

Bringing together his conference experience, and his special insight into the world’s most prestigious family offices, this conference unites family offices with each other. It also gives business and entrepreneurs unprecedented access to this unique and powerful network.
