Why become a Member on Nasdaq Dubai?

Nasdaq Dubai offers brokers the opportunity to connect their clients to exciting investment options on the region's international exchange. Nearly all the UAE's leading brokers are Members already. So are most of the world's leading investment banks. We invite your firm to join as well.


Access to multi-asset class trading

The region's leading multi-asset trading environment with access to equities and derivatives and potentially Sukuk and bonds, ETFs, ETCs, REITs and structured products, supporting the investment and risk management requirements of your clients in one centralised environment.

Clearing, settlement and depository services

Nasdaq Dubai offers a single access point for Central Securities Depository (CSD) services with multilateral netting of positions, removing the need for position management across multiple products and exchanges. Nasdaq Dubai is the only exchange in the MENA region with direct access to international CSDs (Euroclear and Clearstream) enabling settlement for investors globally.

International trading environment

The exchange offers an entry point for international brokers to reach local clients and vice versa. Using this model Nasdaq Dubai offers access for the key international brokers and banks to their regional counterparts with a host of services including trading, custody and other facilities. 

Open connectivity platform

Simple access to Nasdaq Dubai's markets via its open Financial Information eXchange (FIX) Protocol architecture enables connectivity through its own trader workstations, proprietary Order Management Systems (OMS) or through globally leading independent service vendors.

Multi-currency trading

Being an international exchange, Nasdaq Dubai has configured its systems to trade and clear in all G10 currencies opening up additional product and trading opportunities.  

Liquidity provision

With the launch of new products, initial liquidity is ensured with contracted market makers offering aggressive real time spreads and substantial volumes during the exchange's trading hours.

Comprehensive membership packages

Nasdaq Dubai has a number of membership categories offering a range of trading and clearing services which are aligned to the needs of both local and international financial institutions.

Low trading and access costs

Fee structures are designed to attract a wide geographical user base with trading fees to fit a competitive client environment.

Best in class training Academy

As financial markets become more complex, education is vital to bridge knowledge gaps for brokers and clients alike. To service this requirement Nasdaq Dubai offers a wide range of financial services courses and programmes via its Nasdaq Dubai Academy (The Academy), either at clients' premises or at the exchange.
