United Arab Emirates : Nasdaq Dubai and Brokerage House Securities announce collaboration to promote benefits of equity futures to investors
Sep 04, 2018 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) —
Nasdaq Dubai and Brokerage House Securities (BHS), one of the UAEs leading brokerages, have begun a joint campaign to publicise the benefits to investors of trading equity futures.
The campaign will include seminars at Nasdaq Dubais new MarketSite event space, tailor made workshops, videos detailing how to trade and other activities that raise awareness of equity futures unique advantages.
BHS is a trading Member of Nasdaq Dubais derivatives market, which opened in 2016 and includes single stock futures on 17 leading UAE companies including Emaar Properties, Aldar Properties, DXB Entertainments and DP World. The exchange announced last month that it will add futures on 12 companies listed on Saudi Arabias Tadawul exchange later in 2018.
Advantages of trading futures include leverage, which magnifies the financial outcome of an investment, and the ability to make gains in a falling market as well as a rising one. Futures can also be used to hedge existing investments and manage cash flow.
Abdul Hadi Al Sadi, Managing Director of BHS, said: Nasdaq Dubais equity futures market is one of the most exciting developments in the GCCs capital markets for many years, because it hands investors tools to express their investment beliefs in a new way beyond simply buying or selling shares. Futures add flexibility and versatility to investors portfolios, and we are keen to outline these benefits to investors as we expand our offerings to our clients. We look forward to working with the Nasdaq Dubai team.
