Compliance & Governance
No matter where ADQ invests or conducts business, we adhere to our core principles and operate lawfully, ethically and with the utmost integrity. This ensures ADQ can meet the expectations of our leadership and our sole shareholder, the Government of Abu Dhabi.
ADQ maintains high corporate governance standards by adhering to its principles and the guidance of the Board. To create value for our shareholder, we closely engage with partners across our portfolio to provide strategic direction, share global best practice and build an efficient performance management framework.
By working with other stakeholders and market participants, we ensure a positive corporate governance environment and support a performance-driven culture to improve the expected return for the desired level of risk over the long term, helping to scale ADQ’s portfolio and individual positions across sectors, geographies and investment strategies.
ADQ’s commitment to integrity extends beyond mere compliance with laws and regulations. We ensure that employees take the most ethical decision in any situation. This includes promoting an open and transparent culture that prohibits retaliation against those reporting concerns in good faith.
Taking a zero-tolerance approach to bribery, corruption and fraud, the company makes every effort to identify, disclose, register and manage actual and perceived conflicts of interest.
Everyone at ADQ and our portfolio companies, along with our consultants, are measured by the same standards to remain true to the company’s commitment to our people, partners and shareholder.
