Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) is an award-winning international financial centre strategically located in the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
ADGM was created by the Abu Dhabi Government as a catalyst for its ambitious growth plans including innovation and financial intermediation, to advance the growth of the economies in the UAE and MENA region.
ADGM’s jurisdiction extends across the entire 114 hectares of Al Maryah Island.
ADGM’s three independent authorities – the Registration Authority (RA), the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) and ADGM Courts – together ensure that its business-friendly environment operates in line with international best practices, recognized by major financial centres worldwide.
Since opening for business in late October 2015, ADGM quickly gained global recognition for its robust, progressive and responsive business-friendly ecosystem. Through collaboration, and by focusing on understanding business needs, ADGM introduced many ‘firsts’ both regionally and globally. As a catalyst of growth, ADGM delivers value to its clients and its peers and contributes to Abu Dhabi’s ambitious growth plan and strategy.
