DIFC is home to an internationally recognised, independent regulator and a proven judicial system with an English common law framework, as well as the region’s largest financial ecosystem of over 39,000 professionals working across more than 4,900 active registered companies – making up the largest and most diverse pool of industry talent in the region.
