Akbar Seikh: A risk taker and an opportunity seeker

A risk-taker and an opportunity seeker, 25-year-old Akbar Sheikh, Managing Director of Sheikh Holdings, won the first ever EY NextGen Club Award for his outstanding work in the UK real estate market. In 2011, he decided to set up a family office, while also forming a real estate and private equity division under Sheikh Holdings, the company that represents the Sheikh family’s business activities. With this new division, he delivered a residential scheme that was not only profitable, but that also had a substantial positive impact on the local community. And this makes him a truly inspirational figure for all young NextGen members, and the perfect choice for the NextGen Club Award.
