We foster the ideals of our parent company

From modest beginnings in the UAE, Dubai Families has grown to become a worldwide household name with branches in India from Jewellery to Real Estate.

At the heart of Dubai Families growth is the unique culture of our Chairman Abdul Kader.

His business philosophy was based on the simple idea of making the customer No. 1. He believed that by serving the customer’s needs first, his business would also serve its associates, shareholders, communities and other stakeholders. Our goal at Dubai Families is to bring Abdul Kaders culture and philosophy to the deserving customers in Dubai.
