Mubadala Investment Company, Abu Dhabi’s sovereign investor, announced the successful secondary listing of its dual currency bonds. The dollar and dirham-denominated bonds total $4.5 billion and AED750 million respectively. Mamoura Diversified Global Holding (MDGH), its issuing entity, made the announcement at a ceremony held at the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX).
The listings on ADX include Mubadala’s highly oversubscribed debut Green Bond and the inaugural dirham-denominated bond. This makes it the first corporate entity in the UAE to offer a dirham bond. The listing of Mubadala’s green bond marks the seventh green debt listing on ADX.
With interest from local and international investors, Mubadala’s bonds listing on ADX will contribute significantly to the market’s growth. This move is pivotal in diversifying financing resources and providing secure investment alternatives for a broad spectrum of investors.
