The Saigol Group or "Sehgal Group" is a group of companies owned by one of Pakistan's wealthiest families, the Saigols/Sehgals. The family and its companies are based in Lahore, Pakistan.

The Saigols originally hail from Chakwal.[1] The group is managed by three Saigol brothers: Tariq, Nasim and Taufeeq.[2] Also part of the family is sister Naz Saigol, now married to Mian Muhammad Mansha Yaha.

Amin Saigol was the founder of the Saigol dynasty, starting a shoe shop in 1890 that eventually developed into the Kohinoor Rubber Works.[3]

In 1948, the Saigols migrated from Calcutta and initiated their business in Faisalabad, the textile city of Pakistan, under the banner of Kohinoor Industries Limited.

Tariq Saigol, the eldest brother, is head of Kohinoor-Maple group, which owns the Kohinoor textile mills and Maple-Leaf Cement.[4] He is known to be openly critical of the Pakistani government's lack of interest in the textile sector. Nasim Saigol heads PEL and Kohinoor industries.[5] Rafiq, the youngest brother, takes care of the group's other business interests. Bashir Saigol was assigned the managing directorship of Kohinoor Textile Mills, Rawalpindi and Conforce Limited. He is survived by son Iqbal Saigol, who heads his own small group. After the division of the family silver, KTM Rawalpindi came to the lot of Tariq Saeed Saigol who is now heading his own Kohinoor group.

There is a village in Pakistan called Saigolabad - 7 km from Chakwal City, named after this influential business family.

The group also have an investment in the United Arab Emirates.
