We don’t know about you, but sometimes when Kipp finds a word hard to pronounce we like to pretend it just doesn’t exist. But one such word has been pretty hard to ignore this past week.

About Mubadala

Started in 2002, Mubadala (which is the Arabic word for ‘exchange’) was established by the Government of Abu Dhabi as part of their drive to diversify Abu Dhabi’s oil based economy and to increase their presence on the international investment scene. Chaired by the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi himself, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Mubadala’s investments have experienced a significant growth over the years.

The organisation’s focus remains (according to their website) “managing long-term, capital-intensive investments that deliver strong financial returns and tangible social benefits for the Emirate.” Currently they have investments across nine sectors including energy, healthcare, information and communications technology, real estate, aerospace and infrastructure, and services. Though they have a considerable international presence, Mubadala is most active closer to home.
