Five Holdings

Headquarters Dubai

Year established 2010

Sector Hospitality

The Dubai-based real estate group, previously Skai Holdings, was renamed last year following a rebranding phase. Its name now relates to the five elements it claims to represent: earth, water, fire, air and consciousness. While it offers services across four verticals: development, hospitality, restructuring and investment, it is most famous for its 468-room beachfront hotel Five Palm Jumeirah, which opened in mid-2017.

It is working on its second hospitality and residential project, the $348m Five Jumeirah Village Dubai, of which 40 percent is now completed.
