    ACM Limited receives Financial Services Permission extension from Abu Dhabi Global Market’s FSRA

    ADGM FSRA 03/02/2023

    ACM Limited, an HNWI asset management services provider in Abu Dhabi, is excited to announce receipt of approval for its Financial Services Permission extension from Abu Dhabi Global Market’s Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) with effect from 13 December 2022.

    In addition to advising on investments and credit, arranging custody and deals in investments and credit, and managing assets and a collective investment fund, ACM Limited is now also authorized to provide brokerage services, i.e. buying, selling, and subscription services for financial instruments on behalf of its clients and as per their orders.

    The new service may particularly appeal to institutional clients who prefer to control their own investment decisions.

    Moreover, ACM Limited has reinforced its Fund Administration services by obtaining limited permission to act as an administrator of collective investment funds.

    Maxim Kuzyakin, Senior Executive Officer, Licensed Director at ACM Limited, commented: "We are committed to our existing and potential clients’ achievement of their financial goals by providing robust and safe solutions for holding, managing, and amplifying their investments by applying our philosophy of providing a best-in-industry experience and risk resilience to investment solutions that stand the test of time.

    We believe that with the extended Financial Services Permission we can offer our clients a broader range of investment solutions and more asset allocation opportunities to ensure safe investment in the global financial world."

    He concluded by thanking the members of the ADGM and FSRA for their valuable support that has enabled ACM Limited to meet its growth objectives in the region.

    Dimitrios Kanias, Licensed Director, Senior Compliance Officer at ACM Limited, commented: "The extension of our licenses is in line with our vision of ACM Limited expanding and reinforcing its footprint in the MENA region, evolving into a reliable and forward-thinking investment platform.

    By obtaining the extension to our regulated activities, we are able to offer our clients and partners a range of investment services and opportunities delivered worldwide from the International Financial Centre of Abu Dhabi."

    Arvind Ramamurthy, Chief of Markets at ADGM said, “We welcome the news of ACM receiving an extension on its FSP and scaling up their financial operations that will support their pool of existing and potential investors in achieving their financial goals in the UAE and across borders. As an international financial centre, ADGM is committed to catalyse the growth of its business community, through fostering a trusted and well governed business environment that encourages their sustainable growth while contributing to the economic diversification of Abu Dhabi.

    Working under the regulatory umbrella of ADGM and FSRA is something we are proud of and we look forward to seeing the continued growth and prosperity of Abu Dhabi as a leading finance industry player."

    Dimitrios concluded by reiterating ACM Limited’s extensive collaboration with the ADGM and FSRA, focused on transparency, market integrity, and client safety.
