"Since it's founding, the DIFC has emerged as the world's fastest growing financial centre, and as the international investment hub for the time zone between Europe and Asia. Our relationship with London has been integral to this success," said Dr. Omar bin Sulaiman, Governor, DIFC.

"HSBC, Lloyds TSB, Barclays and a number of other prestigious London-based institutions have made a base for themselves at the DIFC. We expect that number to continue to grow to the benefit of both the City of London and the DIFC. This relationship also offers clear benefits for Dubai, the UAE and the wider region."
