Dear friends,

It is with profound sadness that we relay news of the recent death of our partner Saif Mansour. Saif passed away suddenly on October 27th due to an undiagnosed heart condition.

Saif founded Breakwater in 2009 as a young entrepreneur, with the vision of creating an investment firm that reflected his commitment to excellence, integrity, and long-term partnership. He was an incredibly intelligent, energetic, kind, and charismatic person, and a great connector of people who brought joy to everyone who knew him. He was a talented investor, a wonderful friend, and a natural leader.

Saif’s passion for Breakwater was surpassed only by his enormous love for his wife and their two young children. We grieve with them and extend our deepest sympathies to all of his family and friends.

We are heartbroken by this terrible loss but will honor Saif’s memory by continuing to build a firm that reflects his entrepreneurial spirit and core values. May his memory be a blessing to us all.

Sincerely,
The Breakwater Family
