Our investment process
We follow a robust and disciplined investment process from deal sourcing through to realization.
We harness the expertise of our team and our networks within the broader Abu Dhabi ecosystem to source globally compelling investment opportunities.
Once a potential investment is considered to match our criteria, we apply a preliminary evaluation methodology to identify a high-conviction pipeline. This evaluation includes the commercial hypotheses, opportunities, market positioning, and the associated risks and challenges of the specific market and investment.
Financial, commercial, legal, tax and technical due diligence is commenced to further validate the transaction. The collective findings are then reviewed as part of the wider investment case rationale and proposed transaction structure.
A rationale and summary of the key terms of the transaction, final valuation and due diligence findings are submitted to the Management Committee for assessment and review, in addition to the risk-return profile, critical success factors and the investment structure.
Upon approval, our Legal and other relevant functions across ADQ work closely to finalize all transaction documentation, including but not limited to the Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA), Shareholders’ Agreement (SHA), Limited Partnership Agreement (LPA), and/or any other related documentation.
Each transaction is underpinned by our partnership ethos to enable our assets to achieve their commercial targets.
