Alexander Rovt (born 1953) is an American billionaire businessman and real estate investor who made his fortune in the trade and manufacture of fertilizer in the former Soviet Union. He identifies as Carpathian.

Rovt was born to an observant Jewish family in Mukachevo, Carpathia which is now part of the Ukraine. His father was a manager at a knitting factory and his mother a housewife.
