The Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) is a financial free zone that provides local, regional and international institutions a platform that is secure and efficient for them to operate in. It has also strived to create a business friendly environment for its clients with the help of its three independent authorities (The Financial Services Regulator, The Registration Bureau and The Courts).
ADGM offers a comprehensive set of financial services to firms and individuals that focus around three basic elements which are private banking, asset management and wealth management. The Abu Dhabi Financial centre will host a wide variety of financial institutions, commodities and producers as well as offer new financial products that are not currently being provided by any other IFC in the Middle East region. ADGM will also differentiate itself from other financial markets by creating a legal, regulatory environment that will help them meet the needs of their global investors and other financial institutions that are operating in the four major global financial markets.

However the free zone does offer a wide variety of non-financial activities and retail activities that can be carried out from ADGM. Some of these activities include legal and accounting services, employment activities, education, residential care, media, real estate, construction, publishing and broadcasting, telecommunications and facilities management. It also provides a useful environment to domicile holding companies, special purpose vehicles and other structures to hold and protect assets.
