Investing in UAE ADRs / UAE Stocks List
Despite the fact that Dubai and Abu Dhabi are important financial and business centers for the Persian Gulf region and the entire Middle East, there are only a couple of UAE ADRs trading on the OTC. Then again, UAE stock markets were only established at the turn of the millennium back in 2000. Nevertheless and in the future, more UAE-based companies listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) are expected to establish a dual listing either on the Abu Dhabi or the Dubai stock exchanges. Until then, investors interested in investing in UAE ADRs should also check out our complete list of Middle East closed-end funds as well as our UAE ETF list, Middle East/Africa ETF list and Middle East ETF list (including Middle East ETF Region Wide and Qatar ETF lists) as some region wide ETFs or closed-end funds may invest in UAE stocks.
Note: If there are any ADRs to add or remove from this list or there are bad links, please write a note in the comments section so it can be fixed. Likewise, adding any other comments or advice would also be appreciated.
