We’ve got all of the details on Munaf’s net worth!
Who is Munaf Ali?
Munaf is a Dubai-based finance executive of Indian heritage, well known for his hotel business concept. He is the creator and CEO of Phoenix Store, an authorized Bitmain distributor. Phoenix Store is one of the most well-known cryptocurrency mining companies and Bitmain’s exclusive Middle East sales partner.
After graduating from London’s Cass Business school in 1996 with a degree in international finance, Munaf landed his first long-term position as the Vice President of Citigroup. In 2009, Munaf decided to launch his own business, Range Developments and served as the CEO until 2017.
Although he started Range in London, the company moved to Dubai around the same time he met Nina. Following a few months of dating, Nina and Munaf married in 2010, and she moved from Texas to Dubai to be with him.
Since their move, the financial strategist created two other businesses — Phoenix Technologies Consultants and Second Citizenship Consultants. Phoenix Technologies’ website doesn’t provide much information about the business, but reports state that it is a top provider of cryptocurrency mining solutions in the Middle East.
Munaf’s other venture, Second Citizenship Consultants, offers assistance for people hoping to land second citizenship but are wary of scammers. Nina’s hubby works with other “experts” to ensure “individuals and families’ security and peace of mind” throughout the process, per its website. Second Citizenship also has offices in London and Lebanon.
How did Nina Ali meet Munaf Ali?
Nina and Munaf’s wedding celebrations were held in March 2011 in Austin, Texas, where she grew up. Sophia Bella, Nour, and Ayan are the couple’s three children. Nina mentioned in an interview that the couple met in the United States through Nina’s cousin. They got together and married before long, and moved to Dubai shortly after. Despite her parents’ opposition to her moving to the other side of the world, Nina found her footing in Dubai and now calls it home.
Her spouse, who was born and raised in London, relocated to Dubai for work. The position was meant to be temporary, but he quit shortly after and started his own company.
Nina claims that her husband is an introvert who loves to keep to himself. He isn’t on social media for obvious reasons, but he constantly supports his wife, who has grown into quite the influencer over the years. Nina noted in the same interview that her businessman-husband always makes time for their children. He spends time with them on weekends and drops them off at school when he is not traveling for work.
Nina was born in Lebanon but spent her childhood in Texas. After marrying Munaf, she moved to Dubai in 2011. Nina Ali was born and raised in a typical Lebanese family bound by customs and culture. According to her bio on Bravo’s website, she is a “highly driven businesswoman and entrepreneur.”

Besides LinkedIn, Munaf doesn’t have any other public social media accounts. However, his wife often insists that her 537,000 followers see her husband on her page. Nina often posts photos and videos of her and Munaf out on dates or luxurious trips. She also enjoys celebrating milestones like the couple’s 11th wedding anniversary in December 2021.
“One year, 132 months, 573.5 weeks, 96,360 hours, 5,781,600 minutes, 346,896,000 seconds,” Nina captioned a video from her and Munaf’s anniversary party. “11 years down, forever to go. … Happy 11th year anniversary, my love!”
