Mubadala Capital was established in 2011 as the financial investment arm of Mubadala Investment Company (“Mubadala”), one of the world’s leading sovereign wealth funds, with over U.S. $232 billion of assets. Mubadala Capital operates six integrated businesses that include private equity, public equity, venture capital and credit, in addition to a Brazil focused investment business and certain sovereign investment partnerships. Each business employs a fundamental-driven investment strategy in its activities.
Mubadala Capital invests across the capital structure in both private and public securities, either directly or through third-party managed funds and aims to maintain a well-diversified portfolio that generates superior risk-adjusted returns on behalf of its shareholder and investors.
Mubadala Capital is a differentiated and value-added investor that is able to source proprietary investment opportunities on a global basis and actively leverages the Mubadala network in its various business activities. Its highly disciplined and institutionalized process of evaluating investment opportunities provides unique advantages to its investors. Mubadala Capital benefits from significant synergies between its business lines through its global leadership and investment committees.
All of Mubadala Capital’s investment activities are premised on a singular investment thesis: attractive risk-adjusted returns that can be generated over sustained periods of time by combining the benefits of Mubadala’s sovereign ownership, including sourcing investment opportunities, the ability to leverage resources during diligence, and value creation as an owner, with a highly focused investment strategy and well-aligned and motivated team. All of which is supported by a disciplined and robust investment process focused on capital preservation and downside protection.
In addition to its own balance sheet investments, Mubadala Capital invests third-party capital on behalf of institutional investors in four of its businesses, including three private equity funds, two early stage venture funds, a long-biased hedge fund and a fund in Brazil focused on special situations. Mubadala Capital also develops, structures, executes and manages government-to-government investment programs with key partnerships in China, France and Russia.
Mubadala Capital has offices in Abu Dhabi, New York, San Francisco, London, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow, with over 170 employees, all of which operate using established infrastructure support in legal, tax, finance, compliance, human capital and investor relations. Mubadala Capital has made investments of over U.S. $25 billion in aggregate.

Mubadala Capital Businesses
Mubadala Capital’s Brazil business has been active since 2011 and has built a diversified portfolio of private and public assets through the completion of a number of transactions including mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, corporate carve-outs, bankruptcy workouts and other types of special situations. The Brazil team is based in Rio de Janeiro and supported by the Mubadala Capital offices in New York and Abu Dhabi.
Mubadala Capital’s Credit team has been investing since 2009, principally in direct lending opportunities across a variety of industries in North America and Europe. The Credit team has developed a track record in commercial lending by investing directly across different asset classes, initially through Mubadala GE Capital, a joint venture with GE Capital. Following Mubadala’s successful exit from the joint venture, the Credit team, operating as part of the Mubadala Capital platform, pursues a similar strategy with a broad group of origination partners.
Mubadala Capital’s Private Equity business makes investments across the capital structure, largely in private securities on a direct basis with the aim of building portfolios that generate superior risk-adjusted returns on behalf of its investors.
Mubadala Capital’s Public Equities business was established in 2011 and manages a long-biased, concentrated portfolio of global public equities. In addition, the Public Equities team also manages certain positions on behalf of Mubadala.
Sovereign Investment Partnerships
Mubadala Capital’s Sovereign Investment Partnerships (“SIP”) business has been managing commercially driven co-investment programs between the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”) Government and foreign counterparts that include key partnerships in China, France and Russia since 2013. These partnerships consist of strategic government mandates that aim to deliver sustainable financial returns to the UAE, while further developing and strengthening long-term partnerships with the respective country. The SIP team is comprised of investment professionals based in Abu Dhabi, Moscow and Hong Kong.
Mubadala Capital’s Ventures business builds on Mubadala’s long track record of active investment in advanced technology companies around the world. The Ventures platform includes a direct investment business and a fund-of-funds business.
The Ventures team is based in Abu Dhabi, San Francisco and London with strong connectivity to the Chinese venture capital community through other Mubadala Capital managed vehicles that are active in technology.
