Our Story

The Alduaij family office has a long and illustrious history in Kuwait as one of the most prominent and respected business forces in the region as well as one of the most socially responsible.

Today the Alduaij family continues to build on that history through its family business Alea Global Group, under the leadership of CEO Mohammad Alduaij. Alea Global Group has won several international awards, and Mohammad received individual recognition for his work in the field of conflict resolution.

Through their networks, Alea Global Group 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.

From this network, experience and expertise, a series of successful Family Office Investment Summits has arisen, attended by ruling and elite families from the Gulf region with an historic and lasting influence on the global economy. Due to our success in the Gulf we expanded our activity into the APAC region.


Our Africa Summit

The Africa Family Office Investment Summit is the latest edition of a series of events, built on the success of Alea Global Group summits around the world.

As a single family office – as well as your conference host – we understand the needs, concerns and wishes of family businesses better than anyone else. We share your experiences and objectives, and we understand what makes an event like this beneficial to your family business.

The Africa Family Office Investment Summit is an exclusive event which has been designed specifically for families from Africa, or those with an interest in the African continent.

The aim of the summit is to help families connect and network, to learn from each other and to prepare for the future and the challenges to come.

With the support of our board of advisors, Alea Global Group acts as a catalyst, carefully scrutinizing service providers as well as fundraisers for their suitability and ability to address our highly distinguished delegates and to add value to the event.

We present a holistic picture of opportunities for investors by taking both location and industry sectors into account. At Alea Global Group we see the big picture and we think long term; supporting family businesses to strengthen regional economies, leading to the creation of jobs and wealth for everyone.

“People acting together as a group can accomplish things which no individual acting alone could ever
hope to bring about.”

- Franklin D. Roosevelt
