Nov 07, 2016
Dubai Financial Market (DFM) today announced it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Dubai’s Department of Finance (DoF) and Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB). According to this agreement, DIB became the first bank to enable investors who participate in IPOs and Rights Issues implemented through DFM’s “eIPO” platform, to subscribe by directly debiting their accounts as well as receiving the excess amounts.
 
The agreement underlines DFM’s commitment to collaborate with various institutions in order to provide market participants with smart and cutting-edge services in line with the vision and directions of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai.
The agreement was signed during GITEX 2016 by Hassan Al Serkal, Chief Operating Officer, DFM; Jamal Hamed Al Marri, Executive Director of Central Accounts, DoF; and Musabbah Mohammed Al Qaizi, Head of Electronic Banking Services and IT, DIB.

It will further contribute to the success story of the “eIPO” platform by enabling investors to instantly pay for their IPO subscription by debiting their bank accounts. As DIB joins forces with this collaborative efforts that has been agreed on between DFM and the DoF last year, excess amounts of IPO subscriptions will be refunded directly to investors accounts. This joint effort stems from the mutual commitment to further strengthen Dubai’s leading position in terms of smart services globally.”
 
Jamal Hamed Al Marri, Executive Director of Central Accounts at DoF, said: “We are delighted to sign with DFM this MoU. Facilitating future IPO subscription payments for investors through ePay, both inside and outside the country, is a big achievement that contributes to enhance the image of the investment landscape in Dubai. In line with the Dubai Strategy 2021, this step will launch a strategic partnership between DFM and DoF, in order to contribute to the digital transformation in Dubai at the highest possible level."

The eIPO platform is perfectly aligned with our Smart Bank initiative, launched to enhance our customer service and support Dubai’s Smart City agenda, and will further our position as one of the most progressive Islamic finance institutions worldwide. Looking ahead, we will continue to not only innovate our banking services for customers, but also closely support Dubai in its mission to become one of the smartest cities in the world.”
