Welcome to MBRF Holding

MBRF Holding (Holding) was established in 2014 by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) as the company to direct and manage the initiatives and projects of MBRF.

Broadly defined, Holding is a company that doesn’t have any operations, activities, or other active business itself. Instead, Holding owns assets in several limited liability companies.

These businesses are grouped under five major headings:-

  • Education
  • Publishing
  • Distribution
  • Book Selling
  • Marketing Services

These subsidiaries are stand-alone companies staffed by local employees, with their own bank accounts, facilities and offices. At the top, MBRF elected H.E. Jamel Bin Huwaireb as Chairman of Holding to protect their interests and among its other responsibilities, hire the General Manager (GM).

He in turn hires his direct subordinates. This group of people (GM and key executives), together have the accountability and empowerment, to determine the structures and strategy at the companies that they control.

The parent holding company supports the subsidiaries by lowering the cost of capital due to its overall strength. This reduces expense and, in turn, increases both return on equity and return on investment.
