Who We Are

Our Journey Began in 1977

Abu Dhabi Investment Company (Invest AD) was founded in 1977 as one of the first financial services companies in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. It was established just six years after the founding of the United Arab Emirates, with the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan as the country’s first president. With the vast development that was taking place across the nation and profits pouring in from the sale of oil, Sheikh Zayed recognised the importance of establishing a financial services company that would contribute to the future generation’s financial prosperity, long after the last barrel of oil was sold.

Building on Our Legacy

In 2021, amid consolidation of wealth funds in the Emirate, Abu Dhabi Investment Company (Invest AD) transitioned to Mubadala Investment Company as a wholly owned subsidiary.

We partner with world-leading asset managers to offer our clients co-branded investment products, and our government ownership enables us to tap into an extensive global network across governments, business leaders, and regulators. This gives our clients unique access to high-growth opportunities in our target markets that are not available elsewhere.
