The United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom enjoy strong connections, close collaboration, and tight investment partnerships that go back several decades. Building on that relationship, the Ministry of Economy of the UAE and HM Treasury of the UK have jointly organized a special edition of Investopia Global Talks that took place on the 31 January 2024, hosted by the Lord Mayor of the City of London Corporation.
The one-day event themed ‘UAE-UK Financial Services: Partnering for the Future’ followed the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding on Financial Services cooperation, between HM Treasury of the United Kingdom and the Ministry of Economy of the United Arab Emirates, to promote collaboration and bilateral dialogues on financial services.
The London version of Investopia Global Talks convened key stakeholders from the financial markets in both countries to support several ongoing bilateral dialogues and explain what they mean to sustainable growth of the public and private sectors in both economies.
This Investopia Global Talk was an opportunity for business owners, investors, and innovators to connect and explore investment opportunities and ways of shaping the future of the financial services sector in the 21st century’s new economy.
Investopia is a UAE-based platform that connects the global investment community around future investment opportunities. It is an ecosystem that draws on the dynamic and imaginative spirit of the UAE but reaches far beyond. It is designed for those wishing to benefit from the UAE’s unique future-focused economy and its position as an investment hub for some of the fastest growing markets in the world.
Investopia was launched in 2021 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, and H.E. Abdullah Bin Touq AlMarri, UAE Minister of Economy. In its 2nd edition in March 2023, Investopia hosted more than 2,500 participants from ~60 different countries and brought more than 300 C-suite executives, 180 founders and co-founder, and financial institutions representing more than $500 billion in assets under management together in a future-focused business environment. This comes in addition to its Global Talks series, which it has hosted in New York, Geneva, New Delhi, Mumbai, Cairo, Rabat, and Havana.
