Egyptian billionaire businessman Hisham Talaat Moustafa, chairman of Talaat Moustafa Group (TMG) Holding, has seen the market value of his stake in the real estate group retreat from recent highs. The decline comes after a surge in May that pushed his holdings above the $1.1 billion mark on the Egyptian Exchange (EGX).

According to data tracked by Billionaires.Africa, Moustafa’s stake in TMG has dropped by EGP5.33 billion ($113.1 million) over the past 8 days due to sustained selling pressure. This follows a $59.19 million gain between May 15 and 23, when the market value of his shares climbed from EGP51.4 billion ($1.1 billion) to EGP54.1 billion ($1.16 billion).

TMG Holding, a leader in Egypt’s real estate sector since its founding in 1974, has grown into one of the country’s largest groups under Hisham Talaat Moustafa’s leadership.

While TMG’s stock price has experienced volatility in recent times, the company remains a standout performer year-to-date.

Factoring in the recent decline and the Egyptian pound devaluation, TMG Holding has delivered a total return of 46.4 percent to investors year-to-date. A $100,000 investment at the beginning of 2024 would now be worth $146,460, representing a profit of $46,460.
