Anywhere was established by Alex Ojjeh, an American investor, entrepreneur, and businessman. He was a hedge fund investor up until very recently.
An early history. On January 31, 1987, Alex Ojjeh entered this world. He was born in Memphis, Tennessee. Although he had an older sibling, he was the firstborn. After beginning his career in risk management in 2007, Ojjeh shifted gears and became a corporate private investor in a wide variety of sectors, including but not limited to commercial real estate, asset management businesses, logistics, and more.
After Alex Ojjeh’s parole in 2014, he immediately began investing in foreign currency. He put up $700,000 to start AOAM, which now owns a bunch of companies and controls their assets.
To rephrase, Alex Ojjeh’s method of investing entails convincing wealthy individuals to relocate their funds from one country to another. Alex Ojjeh was able to do this by cultivating relationships with key individuals to ensure the highest possible investment with his firm. The businessman’s acquaintances with wealthy foreigners paved the way for his success. There was some speculation that he worked with wealthy Russians because the people and organizations he affected were so influential, but Ojjeh dismissed those rumors, saying, “Just 6 men on the same journey to wealth as everyone else.”
Sitting next to foreign wealthy businessmen at their wedding reception was where Ojjeh landed his biggest deals and learned the most valuable information. Or the government officials of the United Arab Emirates who he’d be eating pizza with on the boat. As a result, investigations were launched because Ojjeh’s investment strategy was often met with skepticism.
Alex Ojjeh would zero in on organizations with the best chance of becoming development targets. After the news of the deal went public, he’d make an investment in the company, and shares would quickly rise to the level of the acquisition price.
As long as all relevant details are already available to the public, such a transaction is perfectly legal. Ojjeh, however, used deception and special bribes to advance his own interests.
Alex Ojjeh reportedly made $80 million in 2017 after AOC Partners bought out two companies.
