- John Sinders, a banker in finance and shipping from Houston, Texas and Dubai UAE
- Investment Dar, a Kuwaiti company, the "largest listed investment company in the Gulf with total assets of US$ 3.66 billion, with net income of US$ 317.3 million in 2006"
- Adeem Investment, another Kuwaiti company, the "fastest growing investment, corporate finance and asset management company in Kuwait with assets under management in excess of US$ 1.5 billion"
