Mr Rashed Al Baloushi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, chaired the event and presented the opening remarks, while Mr. Talal Touqan, Al Ramz Capital’s Head of Research and Advisory, presented the topic. The seminar, which is envisioned as the beginning of a series of equity-related forums and will build further on existing relationships between the organizing parties, was followed by a Q&A session.
“Being one of the leading markets in the region, it’s our responsibility to raise awareness and educate investors about markets, investment decision should be based on proper knowledge and information, and it’s our duty to work with investors to reach such level of education, accordingly, we cooperated with Al Ramz Capital, a pioneering and award-winning national financial services provider with nearly two decades of proven excellence in the UAE financial markets, to host such seminars. Our mutual aim is to provide valuable information and an open platform for investors to address issues related to our financial markets, ask questions, and offer suggestions and ideas. This is just a beginning of a series of events that will reveal the potentials and pitfalls of equity trading in the country and will create closer ties with investors” said H.E Rashed Al Baloushi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange.
“Despite the fact that trading activity has notably slowed down since the beginning of this year, generous dividends and selected sectors represented great opportunities to bargain hunters. There is no double that the last few drawdowns have agitate investor’s confidence, and this may last a bit longer to recover, but solid fundamentals and attractive valuations may offer traders great opportunities to grab. Nonetheless, there are many challenges that have to be addressed to fully leverage opportunities, and the investor community would benefit from closer relations as they work towards a more lucrative equity environment. We are honored to partner with ADX to achieve the common goals of education for investors, continuous dialogue with investors, and improvements to our markets” said Mohammad Al Mortada Al Dandashi, Partner & Managing Director of Al Ramz Capital.
