The sessions aim at promoting culture of innovation amongst DFM employees and various market participants including listed companies and brokerage firms, etc., in line with leadership’s vision as well as the national strategy to transfer the UAE into one of the most innovative countries globally.
The sessions underline DFM’s commitment to actively participate in the Innovation Month, considering its leading role in developing innovative solutions for capital markets’ participants as part of its Smart Borse strategy.
The DFM is organizing five brainstorming sessions focusing on instilling the conceptions of innovation, igniting its flares and developing competencies of employees as well as representatives of brokerage firms, listed companies, custodians and other strategic partners.
Additionally, the DFM is running a virtual stock game for its employees throughout the month of February enabling them to enhance their trading skills. The market has been successfully organizing the most popular annual stock game for students in the UAE and beyond over the past years as part of its efforts to promote financial knowledge amongst younger generations. The DFM also encourages its employees to submit constructive suggestions during the innovation month, in line with the strategic objective of achieving highest levels of customer satisfaction and happiness. Employees submitting feasible suggestions during the month will be rewarded.
His Excellency Essa Kazim, Chairman of DFM said; “The vision and directions of Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, constantly emphasize that there is no finish line in the race towards excellence.
Accordingly, the DFM has been steadfastly devoted to innovation, provision of efficient solutions and continuous development of its services through its momentous journey. As human resources are the key pillar of innovation and development, the slogan of the month is (Innovation Starts with You); hence, we will explore ways to strengthen DFM’s leading position as an innovative exchange through the brain storming sessions for employees as well as representatives of market participants. We are looking for intensifying the innovation efforts in line with leadership’s vision, our corporate values as well as the 2021 strategy that focuses on continuous development and innovation of services and products. We hope that this drive gets further momentum based on the outcome of the brain storming sessions in order to strengthen DFM’s leading position amongst the most advanced and innovative exchanges.”
