The 2012 Global Financial Markets Forum (GFMF), which begins this Wednesday, will offer investor presentation sessions from several UAE top companies.
GFMF, organized by the National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD), is the region’s only facilitator of investor presentations, which create greater transparency and allow the region’s companies tell their story and strategies to a wide international audience. This further aligns the UAE marketplace with the best international standards and allows UAE to expand its participation in commerce in the age of globalism.
“One of the fundamental objectives of the annual Global Financial Markets Forum is to expand Abu Dhabi’s, and by default the UAE‘s, influence and prestige in international commerce,” says Mahmood Al Aradi, the Senior General Manager of NBAD’s Financial Markets Division. “The investor presentations provide a needed service at a time when the world is increasingly uncertain about what lays ahead in 2012, especially as greater attention is paid to GCC companies.”
Companies that will present Investor Presentation sessions are Aldar, Etisalat, General Holding Corporation (GHC), Mubadala, NBAD, and TAQA; which comprise, respectively, of property development, telecommunications, industrial, Abu Dhabi government’s investment arm, financial services and energy sectors.
Investor presentations are a key to raising funds for a company. Last year’s GFMF was the first time investor presentations were offered in the Gulf.
The Forum kicks off February 29 and concludes March 1 with an impressive list of prominent speakers and important Gulf decision-makers.
