Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), positioned as the premier global financial hub in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) region, has further solidified its status as the largest and most favored hub for wealth and asset management (WAM) firms and hedge funds.

With the total number of WAM firms exceeding 370, DIFC boasts a diverse portfolio primarily comprising firms from Asia Pacific, GCC, Europe, UK, and the US. Offering a unique ecosystem, DIFC provides access to a rich talent pool, top-notch infrastructure, robust regulatory frameworks, and direct access to established and emerging markets.

Arif Amiri, CEO of DIFC Authority, emphasized Dubai's allure as a global destination for WAM firms, citing the presence of over 370 firms within DIFC. He attributed this to the substantial wealth pools in sovereign funds, family offices, and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, coupled with DIFC's proven track record of stability and success over 20 years.

Recent additions to DIFC's WAM landscape as of April 2024 include prominent firms such as Audere Capital Limited, Banca Del Sempione Ltd, Blue Owl Capital (Dubai) Limited, and State Street Global Advisors, highlighting the Center's appeal and ability to attract top talent and foster long-term business success.

DIFC's robust performance makes it a compelling choice for WAM companies seeking to leverage Dubai's status as the region's wealthiest city and neutral ground for attracting and managing capital from Middle Eastern sovereign wealth funds. Dubai hosts over 72,000 individuals with investable wealth exceeding USD 1 million, triple the number of any other city in the region, and manages USD 4.7 trillion in capital from Middle Eastern state-owned investors.

In commemoration of its 20th anniversary, DIFC is hosting the first HFM Middle East Summit exclusively for hedge fund managers, bringing together over 200 global leaders, including more than 120 hedge fund representatives, for strategic discussions and networking opportunities.

Addressing the future of WAM, discussions at DIFC's recent thought leadership event 'The Pursuit of Alpha' underscored the industry's focus on leveraging advancements in AI and data science to enhance investment decision-making, alpha generation, and operational efficiency, aligning with DIFC's commitment to driving innovation and excellence in wealth and asset management.
