The global financial crisis happened nearly a decade ago, yet economic growth in developed markets has been lacklustre ever since. Many factors have contributed to the disruption of the finance industry on a global scale: political instability, military interventions, economic policies, diversification of markets, and technological shifts. Therefore, financial institutions must be agile enough to adapt, and governments must ensure that these rapid changes are matched by appropriate policies and regulations. These challenges and opportunities give rise to the three themes of this forum; Globalising Gulf Finance, Emerging Markets, and The Future of Finance.

The Global Financial Forum, organised by Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), will explore these geopolitical, technological and financial trends and discuss how they are affecting the finance industry today and will do in the future.

The event will take place on November 14 at the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, UAE.

The forum will maintain a broad view of global finance while focusing on the Gulf’s crucial financial markets and exploring how that region plans to navigate shifts in the industry in the coming years.

The Global Financial Forum will bring together a high-profile audience from the international finance community to address challenges and forge a path to navigate the new order.

Participants will include multilateral and regulatory officials, as well as C-suite executives from a range of financial institutions, including banks, financial technology companies, insurers, asset managers and professional-services firms.

The forum will offer:

  • Panels on emerging trends moderated by The Economist’s editorial team.

  • Focused networking with C-suite business leaders and key government officials and regulators from regional and global economies.

  • Opportunities to explore new business relationships in the fast-growing Gulf region.

  • Exclusive access to international decision-makers in the finance sector from both established and emerging markets.
