Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) remains a top 3 global region for growth of private wealth after APAC and Latin America. Over $3T of private wealth and $3T of sovereign capital is available in the GCC alone. By 2023, the UNHW population in UAE is expected to grow by 15%. Demand for personal and family wealth continues to grow rapidly yet wealth management remains underpenetrated with a disproportionate amount of wealth still held in bank deposits.
The DIFC has become one of the largest wealth centres between Europe and Singapore, with over $420B of Assets managed. While recent events have heightened uncertainty, the Dubai International Financial Centre is well positioned to navigate through these challenging times with a private wealth platform in line with international standards.
Vistra is delighted to host this webinar with the DIFC and Outer Temple, and looks forward to engaging senior executives on private wealth management opportunities as well as discussing how the DIFCs robust ecosystem addresses the needs of entrepreneurial families.
