DUBAI FINANCIAL Market (DFM) will organise its International Investor Roadshow in New York on September 24 and 25, 2013, in collaboration with Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

The event will bring together international investment managers with senior representatives from ten companies listed on DFM and NASDAQ Dubai. This event is part of DFM’s continued and proactive efforts to put its listed companies on the radar of larger and more diversified international institutions.

This year’s event has gained more significance following decision to classify the UAE as an Emerging Market, which reflects the growing popularity of the local equity market amongst international investment institutions.

The ten leading companies taking part in the roadshow are Emaar Properties, Emirates NBD, Dubai Islamic Bank, DP World, Shuaa Capital, Dubai Investment Company, Air Arabia, Arabtec, Drake and Scull and DFM Company.

Essa Kazim, Managing Director and CEO of DFM, said: “In light of the UAE’s MSCI emerging market status, international investors and emerging market funds have shown great interest in meeting DFM listed companies. DFM provides investors with diversified investment opportunities through its listed companies. They represent a variety of sectors and thrive through a high growth and sustainable economic environment.”
