Capital Markets

UAE: Abu Dhabi - Capital Markets

Abu Dhabi’s capital markets started 2020 on a positive note, bolstered by solid gains on the exchange’s main index in 2019. Similarly, the local debt market ended 2019 favourably, with the UAE ranking as the biggest issuer of fixed-income instruments in the GCC that year. Although much remains to be seen as global markets deal with the twin ramifications of Covid-19 and lower oil prices in early 2020, an increasingly proactive stance to economic diversification and a policy of domestic rationalisation that is creating an added need for debt financing, and which coincides with suppressed rates in global credit markets, bodes well for Abu Dhabi’s capital markets in the medium to long term. Against this backdrop, an ongoing process of reform and the emergence of a new trading platform are set to add further dynamism to the financial markets. This chapter contains an interview with Khalifa Salem Al Mansouri, Chief Executive, Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange.
