Strategy in Action

Mubadala is advancing Abu Dhabi's position in sectors and markets around the world while playing a key role in the establishment of industries and infrastructure that support sustainable economic growth at home. We take a long-term view as an investor, striving to create lasting financial and social returns while fulfilling our mandate to support Abu Dhabi's growth and diversification.

Financial Diversification

The Government of Abu Dhabi has set out a long-term plan for the transformation of the emirate’s economy, establishing a diverse range of knowledge-intensive, export-orientated industries with the aim of reducing reliance on hydrocarbon revenue.

Since formation, Mubadala has been mandated to drive the development of multiple globally-integrated sectors aligned with the government’s development priorities. As a catalyst for the emergence of Abu Dhabi’s leadership position in several industries, we have built the foundations for economic diversification across a range of markets and areas of economic activity.

Blending this multi-generational view with a nimble investment capability, we are bringing Mubadala and Abu Dhabi’s unique perspective on economic diversification to the market.
