Hamed Ali, CEO of DFM and Nasdaq Dubai, said, "As part of our constant efforts to further attract global investments to financial markets in Dubai, we have been committed to virtually organising international investor roadshows over the past two years, yet we believe that our return to the in-person linkage with global fund managers is well timed considering the strong interest towards Dubai’s financial markets. Dubai’s numerous development plans and initiatives aimed at implementing its ambitious strategy to develop its financial markets have reinforced their presence on the radar of global investment institutions, which is clearly reflected on the performance indicators recently."

"DFM attracted 51,404 new investors during Q1-2022, 73.4 percent of them are foreign investors, bringing the total number of its investor base to 903,077 investors representing 209 nationalities, which reflects their growing interest in the DFM opportunities, whether through trading or participating in public offerings. We are pleased with leading companies’ commitment to participate, and particularly welcome the first presence of DEWA few weeks after the outstanding success of its public offering, the biggest in UAE’s financial markets history, as well as the active trading of its shares post listing. We believe that the foreign investments are poised to gain more momentum, with the continued diversification of opportunities and the accelerating pace of public offering, whether government-related or private and family businesses," Hamed Ali added.
