Supporting financial services professionals

The financial services sector is a key sector group for the IBN as more Irish professionals move to the UAE, to work in the sector. Irish financial services professionals working in Dubai hold a very wide range of posts across this sector at many level of influence.

In Dubai, companies that operate in the financial services industry are in the business of managing money, manufacturing financial risk management products, designing structured financial packages for business or offering financial services products, both traditional and innovative, to the public.

The varied activities of the financial sector are classified as follows:

  • Banking services
  • Investment services
  • Insurance services
  • Accounting services
  • Regulation impact for the GCC markets
  • Financial crime
  • Media and digital services

Driven by the impact of increased regulation, transformational technology change, and an emerging focus on customer outcomes, as well as the impact of geopolitical and socioeconomic events, IBN sector meetings are regularly held to help inform and educate members and their guests about the latest trends and events in this critical area. Expert speakers from varying backgrounds in the industry are usually invited to present to our members and guests to add value to the group.
