Who we are

Safanad is a global holding company combining investment and operational excellence to deliver strong compounding risk-adjusted returns. We develop deep conviction behind investment sectors that have strong economic tailwinds, build powerful operating platforms to capitalize on these opportunities, and realize the greatest value from this expertise through organic growth and acquisitions over time. We invite partners aligned with our vision to join us in our mission to invest, build and operate world-class firms in a true spirit of partnership.

We are a successful business-builder in the most competitive and sophisticated economies around the world, including the US and Europe.

We build powerful social capital – across reputation, ecosystem, and network – in focus areas to attract the most skilled human capital at the platform, Board, and Safanad level.

We embrace the athlete’s culture of unimpeachable integrity, disciplined preparation, tactical planning, deep commitment, personal drive, and fearless perseverance in our business.

As owner-operators, we seek out partners interested in unique business building opportunities in strong, resilient sectors of the global economy.

We focus on US and European investment in key platforms across the Education, Healthcare, Digital Infrastructure, and Real Estate sectors today and expand those businesses globally.

Our team of industry-leading talent, supported by a highly-accomplished Board, has executed over 40 deals since our founding in 2009.

We invest in impact, to deliver the kindest care, provide high-quality and affordable education, and promote technological discovery and access.
