2nd Arab IPO Summit to focus on increasing IPO opportunities for the region


ums-conferences-logoDubai, UAE: The capital raised by firms in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) increased by 141% in Q1 2016, while the number of initial public offerings (IPOs) was the same as in Q1 2015. (Source: EY)

The current market trend indicates a reduced dependence on the oil and energy sectors. IPOs are the most effective method of encouraging foreign and regional investments. It is imperative that financial institutions, private firms, stock exchanges and financial institutions come together to review, discuss and tap the region’s investors through IPOs.

UMS Conferences announces the 2nd edition of the Arab IPO Summit, which will focus on the benefits and strategies of listing on an Arab Stock Exchange. The event is scheduled for 14th–15th March, 2017 in Dubai, UAE.

The event will be a collaboration of the top companies, stock exchanges, investment banks and capital markets, which will share their invaluable knowledge and expertise about the present business scenario, and predict the future of the financial markets.

The Arab IPO Summit will feature sessions by industry experts such as Rashid Al Balushi, CEO at Abu Dhabi Exchange; Rashid Al Mansouri, CEO at Qatar Stock Exchange; Ahmed Saleh Al Marhoon, Director General at Muscat Securities Market, Oman; Mustafa Baltaci, Secretary General at Federation of Euro-Asian Stock Exchanges and Abdul Aziz Emadi, Listing Director at Qatar Stock Exchange.
