Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners

About Us

Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners (“ADCP”) is a joint venture between Mubadala Investment Company based in Abu Dhabi and Alpha Wave Global. ADCP was established in April 2019 with committed capital of US$1bn.

ADCP has a dual mandate to achieve financial returns while also contributing to the overall development of the Abu Dhabi Global Market (“ADGM”). We seek to partner with top-tier investment firms and industry leading businesses who would benefit from developing a meaningful and sustainable presence in the ADGM.

Our investment strategy is global, sector agnostic and has scope for both direct and fund investments.

We evaluate partnerships on three key principles:

  • Potential to meet target financial returns;
  • Creation of sustainable presence in the ADGM, with a strong focus on investing in local talent and promoting the hiring of UAE nationals;
  • Scalability through building on the ADGM’s competitive advantages as a financial and regulatory ecosystem; and opportunity to contribute to sector-hubs which are advantageous to Abu Dhabi.
