Credit Suisse in Dubai
One of the fastest growing cities in the Middle East, Dubai has become one of the world's most prominent centers for business and leisure.
Since the formation of the federal government of the United Arab Emirates in 1971, Dubai has successfully turned its economy from an oil and gas-based state into a broadly-based market economy. Dubai offers an ideal environment for individuals to manage their personal wealth.
Credit Suisse's Establishment in Dubai
To be closer to the needs for individuals requiring sophisticated and professional wealth management in the Middle Eastern region, Credit Suisse has maintained a strong presence in the region since 1978.
By establishing our Dubai Branch at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Credit Suisse aims to best serve the clients in the region. The DIFC has the requisite legal and regulatory framework to comply with international standards and thus provides a platform for state-of-the-art private banking operations in both the Near East and Middle East, as well as for areas such as the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Africa.
The Dubai Branch license has been formally accepted by the regulator as of April 1, 2005. This event demonstrates our commitment and our plans to expand in the region. Our capabilities range from traditional Private Banking to Investment Banking and Asset Management according to local regulations. Our local professionals are global experts familiar with the specific conditions and regulatory environment in the client's region. Speaking the same language and understanding sophisticated financial needs, we are able to provide tailor-made solutions to meet client needs.
