HH Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office, has officially opened the new trading floor at Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX).

The opening of the trading floor at ADX’s new headquarters coincides with the unveiling of the exchange’s new brand, which reinforces the exchange’s ADX One strategy to increase liquidity and double market capitalization over the next three years.

The ADX One strategy, which was announced at the beginning of the year, consists of 22 major projects aimed at boosting the listing pipeline, improving corporate governance, and introducing innovative products and services that satisfy the needs of issuers and global investors.

During the inaugural function, Sheikh Khaled emphasized the importance of ADX’s growth as a vehicle for long-term funding and an economic diversifier.
