Executive Summary

Investment banks aid companies and government entities to raise finance by selling shares or bonds to investors and to hedge against risks. Services offered by investment banks can be broadly categorised into four areas – equity capital markets (ECM), debt capital markets (DCM), mergers and acquisitions (M&A), syndicated loans and sales and trading (S&T). The UAE’s classification was upgraded from a frontier market to an emerging market, as a result, effective May 2014 and the UAE was given a weighting of 0.4 percent in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. This upgraded status of UAE can result in potential draw of new funds in the UAE equity markets and thus potential high business for the investment banks based in UAE.
