Having acquired his fortune through his investments in the real estate, chemical and diamond industry, Leviev is now the Chairman of the board of directors and controlling shareholder in Africa Israel Investments Ltd. (AFI). As of November 2012, he has also been the executive chairman of the investment company AFI, which unfortunately is on the verge of insolvency. Also owner of several diamond mines in Africa and Russia, Leviev has as his major competitor the De Beers international diamond cartel. Actually, he even made a name for himself in the business undercutting the De Beers diamond cartel, concluding his own deals with diamond-producing countries like Russia and Angola. However, a diamond king as he has become over the years, Leviev was sued by his former partner Arkady Gaydamak, who filed charges against Leviev that he owed Gaydamak $1 billion in commissions and dividends connected with Angolan diamonds. Luckily, the London court favored Leviev, ordering Gaydamak to pay Leviev's legal fees. Born Lev Avnerovich Leviev on July 30, 1956 in Tashkent, Uzbek SSR, Soviet Union, he is of Jewish ancestry. Thus, he is president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Russia and has made major philanthropic donations for Hasidic Jewish causes in Eastern Europe and Israel. Currently based in London England, Lev is married and a father of nine children.
Lev Avnerovich Leviev (born July 30, 1956) is a Soviet-born Israeli businessman, philanthropist and investor. With a net worth of roughly $1.5 billion in March 2013, he has been a major philanthropist for Hasidic Jewish causes in Eastern Europe and Israel. Beginning in the 1990s, Leviev avoided being directly involved with the Yeltsin family, and nurtured ties with Vladimir Putin. His diamond mining investments in Angola and his investments in Israeli settlements have been the target of protests.


Leviev was born in Tashkent, Uzbek SSR in 1956, and today lives in London and Israel. His parents, Avner and Chana Leviev, were prominent members of the Bukharian Jewish community, and Leviev is a practicing Orthodox Jew. He is a follower of the Chabad Hassidic movement although he is a Sephardic Jew. In 1971, when he was fifteen, his family emigrated from Uzbekistan to Israel. Shortly afterwards, Leviev began to work as an apprentice in a diamond polishing plant, learning the 11 steps of the diamond cutting process. After serving in the Israel Defense Forces, he established his own diamond polishing plant.
After the Revolutions of 1989, Leviev expanded his business endeavors into Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. He received the blessings for success in business and personal support of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson for his philanthropic activities, which include "an army of some 10,000 Jewish functionaries from Ukraine to Azerbaijan, including 300 rabbis. Most of the 300 rabbis are Chabadniks" - adherents of the Brooklyn-based Chabad Hasidic group. In particular he sponsors many of the activities of the Jewish Learning Initiative.
Leviev moved to Hampstead, London, with his wife Olga, son Asher and their daughter, Ruthie, in 2007. As a keen follower of golf, Leviev also maintains a house in the beach resort of Ponte Vedra, Florida.
