The bell-ringing is the latest step in ADX’s journey to advance financial education in the UAE. ADX has worked closely with students and teachers since 2016 to enhance financial literacy across the region through a range of initiatives from stock exchange competitions and simulations, to research grants, market seminars and workshops.

The World Investor Week is the leading global platform to promote financial education and investor protection. It is an opportunity for ADX to collaborate with regulators and markets across the UAE to ensure that the nation’s market education programmes align with global best practice to support the best interests of investors."
