Ayad Nasser (Born in 1970) is a Lebanese businessman, investor, philanthropist and activist. He is best known as the founder and General Manager of “Loft Investments”, a development and investment company which operates in the Middle-East and Europe. Nasser is a self-made man, who became an entrepreneur at a very young age. At the young age of 17, he moved to Monaco to study while working several jobs. By the age of 18, he was already an independent man with his own apartment and stable income, which then lead him to create “Loft Investments”. “This company truly mirrors my personality: the loft is an open, transparent and convenient space. Investments reflect the trust my clients put in me. My only concern is my clients’ satisfaction. I do my best to provide them with quality and comfort before anything else,” he says. Frustrated by the corruption and problems of his own country, Nasser decided to concentrate, as of 2016, on giving back and making Lebanon a better place. “Lebanon needs us, it gave us a lot, it gave a lot to the old generations and the new. Politicians, officials, leaders made billions through it. This is why we need to put our egos aside and start sharing, caring, accepting others, respecting and making time for others. I am on a mission, and I would like you all to join me and help me,” Nasser says. “We all need each other, I did not have a proper childhood with my parents, I did not have the support I needed. I had to make it on my own,” he adds.
