Brokerage
Discover a diverse range of product offerings with world markets connectivity

ADGM's best in class regulatory framework, diverse range of product offerings, and connectivity with world markets makes it the destination for brokerage in the MENA region. Our capital market benefits from a world class listing authority, a framework that places investor protection at the forefront, and a wide range of market infrastructures that include Recognised Investment Exchanges, Multilateral Trading Facilities, Organised Trading Facilities and Crypto Asset Exchanges.

Within its capital markets, ADGM also allows Remote Bodies (exchanges and/or clearing houses) and Remote Members (broker/members) from non-ADGM jurisdictions, to connect into ADGM-based brokers and Exchanges/Clearing houses respectively. Members, brokers, clients, whether based in Abu Dhabi, UAE or elsewhere, have access to a range of investment and trading opportunities across primary and secondary markets, multiple asset classes and product lines.

Financial services entities are required to meet specific resource requirements, either designated as Controlled Functions, which require approval by the FSRA, or as Recognised Functions, which are appointed by the entity itself and notified to the FSRA. For more information refer to Chapters 5.3 and 5.4 in the ADGM General Rulebook (GEN).

Entities that are either required or that want to have a physical presence, will find a wide range of Grade A office space on Al Maryah Island to choose from. The ADGM team will advise regarding office requirements on a case by case basis.

Brokerage is one of three areas focused on Capital Markets at ADGM. The other areas include Debt & Equity Capital Markets and Market Infrastructure.
