With this new platform, both our local and international customers will benefit from a seamless digital experience, with freedom to transact from anywhere in the world. They will also be able to register their interest for any upcoming IPOs in the UAE, which is in high demand amongst the international investors. By expanding our customer base beyond our borders, we expect to increase participation of international investors on both the ADX and DFM, and support their growth plans.”
Saeed Hamad Al Dhaheri, Managing Director and CEO of ADX, added, “We welcome this new global trading and digital on boarding platform which aligns with our strategy of enhancing liquidity, increasing trading activity, and attracting more international investors. We continue to deepen our market capabilities and appeal while attracting more foreign investment into Abu Dhabi. Net foreign investment on ADX increased by 136% during the first half of the year reaching AED 12 billion, which is a testament to the strong international and institutional interest in our growing and dynamic exchange.”
