Senior DFM officials and specialists will be present throughout the show to enlighten visitors on the new services and enduring development plans.
At GITEX 2014, DFM will introduce a demo version of its new smart phone application which enables participants to track their stock portfolio including trade volumes and values, access charts related to portfolio performance in general as well access the latest updates on price movements, indices, disclosures and news. Users can receive personalized updates and information. The guide section also includes various informative guides covering the market products and services, and enables users to swiftly connect with the market and securely submit their feedback. Additionally, DFM will introduce the beta version of its new website which enables investors to create their multiple real-time Market Watch lists and keep track of favorite stocks as well as market depth to make well informed investment decisions.
Moreover, the DFM will display its smart IPO platform (eIPO) which has been successfully utilized during the recent IPOs of Marka and Emaar Malls. The platform, which is directly linked with receiving banks, enables investors to participate in IPOs and pay the required amounts through ATMs, online banking, and the DFM iVESTOR card in an effective, easy and highly secured way. The smart platform also enables the swift refund of excess money, allotment and listing within a few days of the IPO conclusion.

It also ensures voting accuracy and generates statistical reports during the AGM.
