In 2002, Mubadala - the Arabic word for вАШexchangeвАЩ - was established by the Government of Abu Dhabi, with a mandate to facilitate the diversification of Abu DhabiвАЩs economy.
Focus is on managing long-term investments that deliver strong financial returns and tangible social benefits for the Emirate.
The principles that underpin mandate and guide their business strategy differentiate Mubadala from other investment organizations; in short, while Mubadala investments have to be commercially viable, generating sustainable profits over the long-term, they also have to deliver strong social returns to Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates.
Mubadala partnerships with world-class industry leaders underpin those principles; bringing the knowledge, expertise and technical skills that the Emirate needs to build a balanced and sustainable economy.
New, knowledge-based industries are also bringing high value employment opportunities to the United Arab Emirates, encouraging foreign direct investment and providing Mubadala with access to new global markets, both now and in the future.
