DUBAI, United Arab Emirates: The EQS Group, a leading technology provider for digital investor relations in Europe and Asia, is pushing ahead with its global expansion. The founding of EQS Group FZ-LLC, based in the United Arab Emirates, completes EQS’s entry into the Middle East, a region with more than 1,000 listed companies which is opening up rapidly to foreign investors. As such, there is great demand for digital solutions for transparent financial market communications.
The EQS Group has been active for over a year in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain through a cooperative partnership. From its Dubai location, opened in mid-October, the EQS team supports IR managers in the Middle East with products and services for professional digital investor relations. In addition to accessing and addressing investors via EQS’s global Financial Newswire, companies can benefit from EQS’s wide spectrum of tools and services that ensure secure and integrated workflow.
Achim Weick, founder and CEO of EQS Group: “We’ve already learned a great deal about the market and its requirements and we’re confident that our approach to digitalising investor relations work, which has been proven so successful in Europe and Asia, will also offer great added value to investor relations managers in the Middle East. It is a win-win situation: the Middle East offers EQS great potential for growth while the companies in this region’s still young market profit from our know-how.”
Dirk Wagner, responsible for business operations in the Middle East, on his new role: “A growing recognition and awareness of the importance of investor relations in the region, both among business managers and stock market operators, has helped EQS establish important customer relationships as well as support multiple issuers in investor communications with our unique technology.”
EQS’s new Middle Eastern location is yet another part of the company’s committed expansion strategy to be present in the most important financial markets in Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East. This strategy is rooted firmly in a local presence and deep market understanding, complemented by the international expertise EQS has from being a technology leader.
