The agreement was signed in Paris by Arnaud de Bresson, chief executive officer of Paris Europlace, and Philippe Richard, Director, international affairs, financial services regulatory authority of ADGM, at the Paris Europlace International Financial Forum.

De Bresson said: “We are honoured to reinforce the cooperation and business opportunities between Abu Dhabi and Paris financial marketplaces through this joint agreement.

This agreement paves the way for concrete joint initiatives in the respective fields of expertise of each country.”
