Taking time to focus on the soul can reveal some of the rare personalities who seem to be forgotten but play a significant role in our lives.

Real Estate

Mr. Fiyaz made many investments in real estate, buying and renovating properties in London. Some of the renowned projects he has doneare the properties in Rutland Gardens located in the Knightsbridge and in Belgravia district of London. He is also 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.


The year 2007 saw a boom in Shipping industry both in India and China. The local manufacturers in these countries 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 target, that being of the mining operations that are being done in Guinea and other African countries. That prospect concerns Bauxite, which is a sedimentary rock with a relatively high aluminum content. It is the world's main source of aluminum and gallium. 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.


The survey is being held with consultants from notable mining companies such as Coffey Mining, Hatch Engineering, and SRK Consulting.
