Powerful Families in Oman

Powerful Families in Oman - Flag

Powerful families in Oman are a mixture of indigenous clans, descendants of Indian traders, people from Zanzibar and many members of Al Said ruling family.

Powerful families in Oman are a 50-strong universe of ethnic groups that trace their roots to Omani tribes, India and Zanzibar. Along with the ruling family and the State, they control all facets of the corporate world in the Sultanate, especially the banking, trading, hospitality and real estate sectors. Notable mentions go to the families of Bahwan, Mashani, Shanfari, Zawawi, and Zubair.
