Relationship with GovernmentADIA was established by the Government of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in 1976 as an independent investment institution.
ADIA conducts its investment activities without reference to the Government of Abu Dhabi and has no visibility on the spending requirements of the Government or the activities of other Abu Dhabi-owned investment entities.
ADIA’s assets are not classified as international reserves.
The Government of Abu Dhabi provides ADIA with funds that it has allocated for investment and are surplus to its fiscal requirements. ADIA is required to invest these funds in such a way to generate sustainable long-term returns, and to return funds to the Government of Abu Dhabi, as needed.
