Global Fellow

Jawad Aslam


Jawad Aslam was born and raised in the USA. In 1999, after completing his MBA in the USA, he came to Pakistan for three years to pursue a degree in Arabic and Islamic Studies. After working in high-end real estate development in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Jawad moved to Pakistan and joined Saiban in 2006, the only affordable housing developer in the country. During his time at Saiban he was selecting to be a Global Acumen Fellow. As a Fellow he developed the business plan for Ansaar Management Company (AMC) with a vision to become a leader in the provision of high-quality, affordable housing. Recently, Acumen has successfully exited its investment in AMC—major specialized investors in affordable housing are now bringing in large sums of money to invest in the low-income housing sector through AMC. He lives in Islamabad with his wife and daughter
