“Investopia, established by the UAE government in 2021 as a global platform, aims to bring together the global investment community, decision-makers, entrepreneurs, and innovators to explore growth opportunities in emerging economies. Our partnership with iConnections aligns with Investopia’s vision and goals, especially as we focus on technology and sustainability in a rapidly digitalizing world.”

“Our partnership with Investopia is a significant step for iConnections as investors increasingly focus on the UAE and Gulf region. This collaboration allows us to present our top-notch managers to the world’s leading investors through our capital introduction technology,” said Mr. Biscardi.

Investopia is a key initiative under the “Projects of the 50” declared by the UAE government in 2021. Its goal is to boost the exchange of global investments and support emerging economic sectors. Investopia will host its second annual conference in Abu Dhabi on March 2nd and 3rd 2023, with the theme “Envisioning Opportunities in Times of Change”.

iConnections is a leading virtual community for capital introduction that connects the investment management industry. It enables managers and allocators to connect through virtual meetings and facilitates information sharing, allowing allocators to select and meet with managers through the platform.
