Use our international platform to access regional markets
ACCESS REGIONAL LIQUIDITY
Traditionally, companies, governments and financial institutions have looked to the international capital markets to meet their financing needs. However, with the advent of the regional stock markets, there has been an increasing flow of IPOs and listings on the regional exchanges. At the same time, regional investors require liquid and efficient markets to absorb the rapidly growing stock of financial assets accumulating in pensions, life funds, collective investment schemes and other savings vehicles.
DIFC is home to Nasdaq Dubai, formerly the Dubai International Financial Exchange, which lists equities, equity derivatives, structured products, sukuk (Islamic bonds) and conventional bonds. Through the exchange, regional and international issuers can access regional and international liquidity. International issuers can access capital from the region, through a primary or dual listing.
