Dubai - Mubasher: Dubai Financial Market (DFM) will reopen its Trading Floor and Customer Affairs counters for investors starting Tuesday, 7 July, after nearly four months of closure due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Since mid-March 2020, the DFM Trading Floor and Customer Affairs counters have been closed due to the measures imposed by the UAE government to contain COVID-19.
However, investors have continued their trading activities via the DFM's electronic platforms.
From 14 June, all DFM employees and brokers have resumed their work from the Trading Floor while implementing the precautionary measures, including social distancing and thermal measuring devices at the entrance.
The Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Head of Operations Division of DFM, Hassan Al Serkal, said: "We highly encourage market participants to continue utilizing DFM’s electronic and smart platform with the same pace witnessed during the past three months."
"The reopening shouldn’t substitute the success achieved in terms of accomplishing transactions through DFM smart platforms developed in line with the leadership’s vision on digital transformation and as part of the Smart Borse strategy," Al Serkal added.
