Mubadala Investment Company, an Abu Dhabi-based sovereign investor, announced the acquisition of a 2.6% stake in EN+. EN+ is a global leader in low-carbon aluminium production and renewables.

Mubadala is paying about $200 million for the stake in the company founded by Polina Yumasheva’s former husband, Bloomberg reported citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.
