Javed Fiyaz is a young Belgian entrepreneur with a net worth of $4.3 Billion and is notable for his charity work, both in Asia and in the UK. His business interests and his success in diverse fields have made him a billionaire.

Mr. Fiyaz is notable for having diverse business interests and it is through them that he has achieved international success. He has spread out his investments in the fields of real estate, information technology, shipping, oil & gas, mining, and commodities.

Real Estate

Mr. Fiyaz can be considered a real estate tycoon in the UK. He has made many investments in real estate, buying and renovating properties in London.

Mr. Fiyaz is interested in real estate around the world, particularly in the Middle East where he has quite a list of contacts with whom he regularly meets.


In 2007 a boom occurred in both India and China in the shipping industry. The local manufacturers started exporting huge quantities of coal ore, bauxite, iron ore, grain, phosphate, fertilizer, and steel. That boom led to the creation of Mr. Fiyaz's shipping network. He developed a fleet of vessels capable of carrying dry goods in bulk. Along with the fleet, he also developed a shipping network which incorporated many clients, both in the exporting countries and in the importing ones. This venture was so successful that Mr. Fiyaz was able to merge with the London registered Global Ocean Carriers. The merger helped increase both the scale and the profitability of this venture.

Oil & Gas, Mining, and Commodities

Mr. Fiyaz currently has only one prospect under his purview, that being of the mining operations that are being done in Guinea and other African countries. That prospect concerns Bauxite, which is a compound containing high levels of Aluminum. It is currently under geological scoping in order to estimate the full value of the find, and how work should be done to minimize natural damage while still extracting the maximum amount of the ore that lies there.
