Banking and Capital Markets.

The preferred choice for banks managing wealth, global deals and structuring financial transactions.

There are exciting opportunities for financial institutions in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) region. Transformation is being driven by innovation, strong economic and demographic growth, and the region is home to enormous private wealth.

For banks, this presents enormous opportunities to expand existing businesses and develop new customers. Expanding wealth, accelerating cross-border trade, growing investment and continued M&A activity reflect this opportunity.

DIFC offers the number one location in the region to tap into this dynamic environment. The city of Dubai sits at the heart of emerging markets that are demanding a full range of commercial and wholesale banking services.

When you join the number one financial centre in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, you benefit from DIFC’s proven world-class laws, regulations, infrastructure and unbeatable connections.

Banks enjoy managing global deals and structuring financial transactions in a DIFC market that is approaching USD 1 trn of activity. DIFC asset managers oversee nearly USD 500 bn in AUM from private and public markets in the region.

The banking and capital market focus within DIFC includes companies operating across a wide range of sectors, including banking activities including, but not limited to, corporate banking, lending, trade finance, crowd funding platforms, cash management and services supporting corporate treasuries.
