New Chinese and Indian Banks at Dubai International Financial Centre Soon

July, 2017

Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) has revealed that various top Chinese and Indian banks are in the process of obtaining banking licenses and will be shortly setting up operations at DIFC.

A number of leading Chinese and Indian banks are already operating from DIFC.  In the next year or so DIFC expects to house another 10 Chinese and Indian banks, although the names of the banks haven’t been mentioned, according to a Gulf News report.

A strong interest from Asia’s top banks and financial institutions can only be positive for DIFC and the economy of Dubai on the whole.

It goes without saying that increased interest for new company formations in DIFC and other Dubai free zones is strongly anticipated.

DIFC provides an environment for huge wealth and investment opportunities.  It is the ideal platform to set up a business and prosper from the region’s huge demand for financial services.

Areas of Business at DIFC

DIFC houses a diverse range of financial and non-financial companies from all over the world.


Many banks and brokerage firms are housed at DIFC.

The DIFC’s legal and regulatory platform has attracted banks that provide a host of services such as:

Top global and regional insurers, reinsurers and brokers are based at DIFC and take advantage of its world-class infrastructure, regulations and legislation.

Global insurance companies have in many cases joined forces with regional companies to serve the region’s high demand for insurance and reinsurance services.

Wealth and Asset Management

DIFC’s legislative and regulatory platform offers an attractive, secure environment for the growth of the Fund Management sector.  DIFC’s environment provides an attractive proposition for the management, domiciliation and distribution of funds.

The region benefits from a vast pool of wealth and a growing appetite for specialist investment products. This supportive legislative and regulatory regime is why the DIFC has been chosen by around 200 active wealth and fund management firms as a strategic hub to help grow their businesses.


Given the “light touch” approach of the DFSA with respect to QIFs and the relative speed in setting up QIFs, a number of regional managers have recently chosen to domicile funds in the DIFC as QIFs, rather than in other offshore or tax-free jurisdictions.

Brokerage and Capital Markets

Nasdaq Dubai (previously known as Dubai International Financial Exchange) is housed at DIFC.  Nasdaq Dubai lists equities, equity derivatives, Sukuk (Islamic bonds), structured products and conventional bonds.

DIFC offers an ideal environment for investment banks and financial institutions to provide the below services to the region:
