The Emirates Investment Authority (EIA) is the only sovereign wealth fund of the federal government of the United Arab Emirates.[1] It was established in 2007 as an investor in businesses within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), focussing on investing in asset classes considered to help strengthen and diversify the UAE economy.[2]


The EIA made two investments when it acquired major holdings in two Middle Eastern and North African telecommunications companies, Etisalat and Du.[1] Further investments are known to have been made in Gulf International Bank in Bahrain, the United Arab Shipping Company, and the Gulf Investment Corporation. In total, the EIA has acquired over 30 stakes in corporations across the GCC.[3]
