The new membership reaffirms the keenness of ADX for its operational practices to conform to those of the global financial markets. In addition, the new membership demonstrates ADX’s commitment to promote financial stability and growth in the emirate by maintaining the highest standards of practice in financial services as part of its commitment to Abu Dhabi Plan and towards the continuous development of financial performance. The membership also comes as a recognition from the Institute of International Finance of the achievements of the Exchange in terms of contributing to the promotion of capital market capabilities in the UAE.
Membership in the IIF will provide ADX with the opportunity to benefit from the economic and financial research and analysis provided by the Institute to its members as the Institute offers comprehensive assessment of the global outlook with a focus on key emerging economies, timely analysis of capital flows to emerging markets and developments in international financial markets, consequently allowing ADX to achieve one of its main priorities in the Abu Dhabi Plan which is contributing to the development of the financial services sector in the emirate. It will also enable ADX to promote the investment opportunities available in the emirate in general and ADX in particular at the international level through continuous communication with members of the Institute of asset managers and investment funds.
