Defined as a gateway into the growing economies of the Middle East, North African and South Asian markets. The Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) is an international financial centre found within the capital of the UAE.
The ADGM is a financial free zone with its own civil and commercial laws as well as its own financial services regulator, the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA).
Any corporate entity or an individual setting up a company in the ADGM can have 100% foreign ownership and would be subject to the civil, commercial, and regulatory environment like that established in the United Kingdom. The ADGM also includes the ADGM Courts, the infrastructure of which uses the common law in practice, which allows registered companies to draw on a well-established set of precedents. Ultimately, this type of set up provides peace of mind to foreign investors and businesses alike.
