“Introducing an exchange traded fund to the region was an imperative move by NBAD and the 1UAE has proved to be a resilient investment tool,” said Saleem Khokhar, the head of equities at NBAD’s Asset Management Group. “Our strategy in 1UAE has succeeded and its success is recognised by the industry.”
