He also reiterated the wide range of financial instruments, innovative services and resources available at ADX that enable investors to make sound investment decisions.
"Dual listing on ADX allows companies to access one of the world's largest financial conglomerates, as well as capital markets in the GCC and Mena region, it also enables them to benefit from a broad base of investors within a secure and stable economic and investment environment. Through dual listing on ADX, investors will be able to access more liquidity and enjoy the ease and efficiency of operations, benefiting both companies and their shareholders," he said.
ADX's participation in the second Arab Capital Markets Conference, organised by the Union of Arab Securities Authorities in cooperation with JSC, was also aimed at promoting transparency and financial innovation.
Al Mansouri further stressed ADX's commitment to improving corporate governance framework and enhancing disclosure and transparency to protect investors' rights. "The exchange continues to strive to improve financial markets' performance to make them more sustainable and transparent, with a view of encouraging long-term sustainable investments and to promote institutional disclosure practices.
