Attracting fast-growing technology-driven businesses

Developing a robust investment ecosystem

We launched ADC Acquisition Corporation PJSC (ADC), the UAE’s first Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) alongside Chimera Investments – enabling Abu Dhabi to attract fast-growing, technology-driven businesses and making the prospect of raising capital faster, simpler and more cost-efficient than an IPO. This new milestone will help support our emirate’s economic diversification and enhance its financial services sector, while providing opportunities to a wider range of professionals to live, work and invest in Abu Dhabi.
