Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), in association with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) as a ‘Strategic Economic Partner’, has announced the launch of the Abu Dhabi Finance Week (ADFW), which is set to run between November 14-18. The event builds on the success of ADGM’s Fintech Abu Dhabi festival.

Abu Dhabi Finance Week will be staged across 12 events, bringing together global financial market leaders in areas such as financial technology and innovation, startups and enterprises, venture funding and investments, asset management and capital markets, planet and society, and related economic policies and regulations introduced globally.

With the inclusion of Fintech Abu Dhabi, the event will see John Collison, founder of a $95bn startup, Stripe; and New York Stock Exchange chairman, Jeff Sprecher along with global banking CEOs returning as speakers at ADFW 2022.

New interesting introductions to the event include Crypto Abu Dhabi, Start-up Campus, the R.A.C.E. (Regulation, Awareness, Collaboration, Ecosystem) sustainability summit and Asset Abu Dhabi, which will host around 300 senior investors from 30 countries, with over $4tn of assets under management.

Ahmed Jasim Al Zaabi, chairman, ADGM said: “As I look back on the past successes of Fintech Abu Dhabi’s editions, and head to what comes next, I see us amid an exciting transformational era. We are on the cusp of a new, digital future, and making progress on a continuum of highly significant and progressive economic challenges. Harnessing these exciting opportunities regionally and internationally is of prime importance to ADGM. This pioneering edition of the ADFW looks to achieve that and couldn’t have been timed better.”

He added that the event aims to start in-depth discussions on these topics with an enriched multitude of financial industry leaders from every corner of the world. “We look forward to bringing this ground-breaking flagship event to the global financial community.”

Mohamed Al Shorafa, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development explains, “The global banking and financial system is an integral part of any country’s overall macro-economic growth and development equation. Abu Dhabi Finance Week now forms a vital block in the capital’s business events calendar. From global shifts in monetary and fiscal policies, stock markets and valuations, digital currencies, public and private equity, green financing, financial inclusion and financial regulations to many other hot topics guiding everyone’s business agenda, rest assured, this platform will work to thoroughly address and critique current financial and economic headwinds and aim to pre-empt for future movements.”
