Mubadala Capital, an arm of Abu Dhabi's state fund Mubadala, said it had conducted a private equity transaction with European fund manager Ardian, which had committed to invest $2.5 billion in the deal.

It is the first time that Mubadala Capital is accepting capital from third-party investors, Mubadala said in a statement on Thursday.

The deal has two components: Ardian is acquiring an interest in a private equity portfolio currently managed by Mubadala Capital, and Mubadala is establishing a new private equity fund in which Ardian will be a lead investor.
