According to Emirates Business 24/7, “Mubadala Development Company and Pramerica Real Estate Investors, a unit of US-based Prudential Financial, have agreed to set up a company that will raise capital to fund and invest in real estate projects in Abu Dhabi and other international markets.

Mubadala Pramerica Real Estate Investors (Mubadala Pramerica REI), the joint venture, will be owned equally by the two companies and will be headquartered in Abu Dhabi.

“The joint venture will become operational soon, but we are not in a position to specify a date,” a Mubadala spokesperson told Emirates Business.

In a press statement, Waleed Al Muhairi, Chief Operating Officer for Mubadala, said: “By partnering with Pramerica, we’re bringing together one of the world’s leading real estate investment companies with our regional market expertise and knowledge. This is a compelling prospect for investors that want to participate in the current and future growth of the region.”

The joint venture, according to the spokesperson, will only raise capital to fund and invest in real estate projects and will not develop, or act as a developer of real estate projects.

“The JV will be contracting with real estate developers to build and develop the real estate projects it will invest into.”

Mubadala has already set up two other joint ventures for development purposes.”
