Business Review

In a year when traded equities value on all other GCC stock exchanges declined, in some  cases by more than 50%, NASDAQ Dubai bucked the trend by posting an increase of 22% over 2009.

The exchange also made key structural changes to its market during 2010 that are designed to further increase liquidity, through an outsourcing of its key operational functions to Dubai Financial Market (DFM).  This radical step has redrawn the capital markets landscape by merging NASDAQ Dubai’s international institutional investors into the same liquidity pool as DFM’s more than 500,000 regional retail investors.

Our outsourcing to DFM is already bearing fruit with greater retail access. A 22% increase in traded value over 2009 shows healthy progress.
