The Business of Family

Founded by HE Humaid Bin Drai over 40 years ago, Bin Drai Enterprises was at the outset intended to be a family business. Today, as we are entering our second generation of succession, it has grown into a successful Family Office with international investments proudly headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is interesting to note that family businesses are the oldest and most common type of business worldwide. Creating a major share of turnover and employment they form a backbone of the global economic system.

With their long-term perspective and stakeholder orientation, Family Offices represent capitalism with a human face – combining social responsibility with a determination for economic success. Particularly in hard times they play off their competitive advantages. Recent studies show that the best family-owned companies around the globe outperform public companies in terms of long-term growth, profitability and stability.
