Posted on 05/06/2021

Mubadala Investment Company released its 2020 financial results for the Group. In 2020, Mubadala achieved a Total Comprehensive Income attributable to the owner of AED 72 billion for the year, compared to AED 53 billion in 2019. It is the largest TCI in Mubadala’s history, driven by significant growth in Mubadala’s public equities portfolio and funds, as well as the company’s assets across various sectors.

Mubadala also announced a five-year portfolio return of 9.8%, dating to 2016.

According to the press release, “The performance was also attributable to Mubadala’s multi-year strategy to increase investments in sectors with growth ‘tailwinds,’ such as technology, life sciences, and consumer goods, through direct investments and partnerships with leading fund managers. Major investments in 2020 reinforced that strategy, including long-term agreements with Silver Lake in technology; in life sciences with PCI Pharma in the U.S.; and in consumer goods and telecommunications with the Reliance Group of India. Other significant investments included new commitments and deployments with Apax Partners, Citadel, iSquared Capital and CVC.”

For Mubadala, the United Arab Emirates and the United States remain the largest geographic areas for the portfolio. In addition to its new capital deployment in India, Mubadala also invested through its sovereign investment partnerships in France, China, and Russia in 2020. At year-end, Mubadala’s AUM across the group stood at AED 894 billion compared to AED 853 billion in 2019.
