Mubadala Investment Company PJSC (Arabic: شركة مبادلة للاستثمار‎) (Mubadala) is an Emirati state-owned holding company that can be characterized as a sovereign wealth fund. The organization is strongly connected to Mohamed bin Zayed, crown prince of Abu Dhabi.[2]

It was established in 2017 when then-named Mubadala Development Company (now Mamoura Diversified Global Holding) and the International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) merged. It is a wholly owned investment vehicle of the government of Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates.[3][4][5] Reportedly, Mubadala Investment was formed after Khadem al-Qubaisi, ex-managing director of IPIC, was arrested over his and the company’s involvement in the 1MDB scandal.[6]


In June 2016, it was announced that Mubadala Development Company (MDC) would merge with IPIC.[7][8][9] In 2017, ownership of both MDC and IPIC was transferred to a newly-created parent company, Mubadala Investment Company.[10]

Mubadala has a ventures unit called Mubadala Ventures.[11] Mubadala has invested in logistics software startup Turvo,[12] Alphabet-owned self-driving technology company Waymo,[13] Reliance Jio Platforms,[14] UK life sciences company Envision,[15] and Telegram.[16] Mubadala is a parent company of GlobalFoundries, a semiconductor foundry company.[17]
