9780006531050: The Prince: A Biography of Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal

At barely 40 years of age and worth over 12 billion dollars, Saudi Arabia's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is one of the planet's wealthiest, most successful and most unusual investors - a global dealmaking genius who scored some of the richest investment coups since the 1990s. Alwaleed has come to the rescue of Citibank, Apple, EuroDisney, Michael Jackson and Canary Wharf to name only the most prominent, making himself multibillion dollar capital gains in the process. He is also the second-largest investor after KRM in Newscorp. Alwaleed also stands out as one of the world's first truly global tycoons, fully taking advantage of the increasingly borderless, increasingly seamless global markets. Other tycoons, from Carnegie and Rockefeller to today's Murdoch or Gates have enriched themselves in either a single country or a single sector. This biography exposes the previously little-known life and influence of this Saudi prince and his background in the Middle East.
