Mubadala, CDC partner for €300m French joint venture


Abu Dhabi investment group Mubadala Development has partnered with state-backed investor Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) to establish a €300m fund to invest in France.

The joint venture will span private equity, real estate and infrastructure, with each partner committing up to €150m.

The venture will be made via CDC’s International Capital unit, a specialised division founded to mobilise investments from overseas sovereign wealth funds. Previous partnerships have been made with funds in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and the Russian Federation, representing close to €1bn of committed capital.

Last year Mubadala awarded a $900m mandate to Moscow-based fund manager Verno Capital to invest in Russian private equity.
