Mumtalakat is the sovereign wealth fund of the Kingdom of Bahrain established to generate sustainable financial returns through an actively managed portfolio and a well-diversified investment strategy.
We are wholly owned by the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
At our inception in 2006, we inherited 29 non-oil and gas assets from the Ministry of Finance and National Economy with a mandate to manage and grow a portfolio both strategically and commercially.
These included industrial giant, Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), our national airline, Gulf Air, our real estate investment arm, Edamah, leading telecommunications and digital solutions provider, Batelco, Bahrain’s first locally owned bank, National Bank of Bahrain (NBB), and host to the first Grand Prix in the Middle East, the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC).
Our investment approach covers Strategic Investments (local and International), Global Asset Management, Local Investments and Government Holdings. We invest globally across public and private markets in all major asset classes, including Equities, Fixed Income, Real Assets, and alternative strategies, and seek to generate sustainable long-term financial returns through a globally diversified investment strategy. We follow a rigorous investment process, taking a calculated and balanced approach to risk management across our investments.
We take an active hands-on management approach, working collaboratively with our portfolio companies and other partners using a transparent and dynamic engagement process to ensure delivery against our aligned objectives and targets with the aim of enhancing our portfolio and delivering superior returns.
Mumtalakat is committed to investing in and for the Kingdom of Bahrain. Our local portfolio companies contribute to sector diversification with the aim to grow and transform industries in the country.
By enhancing portfolio value through active ownership, we help local industries evolve through competitive advantage and international best practices. We also seek to attract new investments and generate sustainable financial returns.
A number of our portfolio companies are based outside of Bahrain. We invest in opportunities across sectors of strategic interest with significant growth potential, regionally and internationally. Please visit our portfolio page for more information on our international investments.
