DFM to hold roadshow in New York
Dubai, August 28, 2013
Dubai Financial Market (DFM) is set to host its international investor roadshow in New York on September 24 and 25 , in collaboration with Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
The event will bring together international investment managers with senior representatives from 10 companies listed on DFM and Nasdaq Dubai.
This year’s event has gained more significance after MSCI’s decision to classify the UAE as an Emerging Market, which reflects the growing popularity of the local equity market among international investment institutions, said a statement.
The DFM delegation will update institutional investors on the recent successes and prospects of their respective companies. Each of the ten companies will hold several one-on-one and small group meetings for targeted discussions on investing in the region.
Essa Kazim, managing director and CEO of DFM, said: “DFM provides investors with diversified investment opportunities through its listed companies. They represent a variety of sectors and thrive through a high growth and sustainable economic environment.”
Talal Ghandour, Mena head of equities at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said: “We are honoured to have the opportunity of hosting this event in partnership with the DFM. This event will showcase several of the DFM’s listed companies to some of the largest investors in Frontier and Global Emerging Markets.
"The two-day event will allow each company to present their respective businesses, as well as providing critical insights into the investment case of Dubai and the UAE” - TradeArabia News Service
