Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal (also spelled Waleed bin Talal) (Arabic: الوليد بن طلال بن عبد العزيز آلسعود‎; born 7 March 1955) is a Saudi Arabian/Lebanese billionaire and member of the Saudi royal family. He is the nephew of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. An entrepreneur and international investor but without real political power within the House of Saud or in Saudi Arabia, he has amassed a fortune through investments in real estate and the stock market.

He is founder and CEO of Kingdom Holding Company. As of March 2011, his net worth is estimated by Forbes at US$19.6 billion, making him the 26th richest person in the world. This listing also ranks him as the richest Saudi Arabian in the world. He has been nicknamed by Time magazine as the Arabian Warren Buffett.

Al-Waleed bin Talal was born to Talal ibn Abd al-Aziz, the son of the founding King of Saudi Arabia, Abdul Aziz Al Saud and Princess Mona El-Solh, daughter of Riad as-Solh, Lebanon's first Prime Minister. He is Prince Talal's second son.
