The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) continued its ambitious growth trajectory showing a 16.9 per cent gain on its benchmark index FTSE ADX 15 (FADX 15) from the start of the year until the end of the third quarter.

The gain was supported by a rise in institutional and individual investors on the exchange, a trading uptick on ADX’s fast-growing exchange-traded funds (ETF) market, new listings, and the introduction of an index created in partnership with FTSE Russell, as reported by state news agency, WAM.
