Abu Dhabi Sovereign Fund Mubadala Prepares to Launch Two SPACs

Investor mania for SPACs has accelerated in the oil-rich Gulf, where Abu Dhabi sovereign fund Mubadala is poised to launch two SPACs and a Dubai-based asset manager is raising $200m to target mergers with companies in the Middle East.

Mubadala Investment Company has been talking to potential investors for two SPACs focusing on technology and healthcare, said the Financial Times. The roadshow comes as Mubadala, which had record profits and growth through 2020, reorients its core areas of investment away from petrochemicals and manufacturing towards new industries, such as technology, healthcare and infrastructure.
