Early life[edit]

He is the son of Najib Razak and his first wife, Tengku Puteri Zainah Tengku Eskandar ("Kui Yie"). He has an older brother, Mohd Nizar Najib and a sister, Puteri Norlisa Najib, as well as two half-siblings from his father's second marriage, Mohd Norashman and Nooryana Najwa.[3]

He started a degree in computer science at the University of Nottingham, but soon changed to study international business at American Intercontinental University in 2002, where he obtained a bachelor's degree. He then enrolled at Cass Business School at City University.[4]

Career[edit]

Nazifuddin started his career with UBS Wealth Management Hong Kong and worked there for three years, before starting as an entrepreneur in Malaysia.[4]

Nazifuddin is the youngest-ever vice-president of the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM), when he was appointed in August 2015.[1]

Nazifuddin has been named in the Panama Papers, and has responded that he is no longer involved in the two companies involved in the data leak.[5]

Nazifuddin further stated, "I held directorships in two companies based in the British Virgin Islands (BVI): Jay Marriot International and PCJ International Venture Limited. These companies were incorporated by the international law firm Mossack Fonseca," and that he had transferred all of his Jay Marriot shares to fellow director Ch'ng Soon Sen's sister and had resigned in 2011, and that PCJ was shut down a year after its 2013 foundation and had had no business transactions.[5]
