One NBAD Tower, the Bank Head office in Abu Dhabi
The National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD), the Number One Bank in the UAE, is lead sponsor of the UAE Global Investment Forum to be held on Wednesday March 21st, 2012, in Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
The speakers and panelist at the Forum will focus on the outlook for global and regional markets, and the opportunities for foreign investors in Abu Dhabi, especially as worries over US and Euro zone rises and the balance of economic power shifts to the emerging markets and commodity-rich nations. The Forum will bring together high profile global investors, business leaders and financiers with Abu Dhabi’s key decision-makers.
NBAD officials will offer their professional expertise in the debates and discussions. Michael Tomalin, the Group Chief Executive of NBAD, will address the “Outlook for the UAE;” and Chavan Bhogita, the Head of Market Strategy at NBAD’s Financial Markets Division will participate in a panel titled “are the Fundamentals Strong Enough in Regional and Local Markets?”
“Sponsoring UAE Global Investment Forum is a direct link to one of NBAD’s core objectives: to create a forum for knowledge-sharing and enlightenment,” says Mr. Tomalin.
“Moreover, NBAD is committed to supporting Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, which aims to transform Abu Dhabi to a global hub of culture and commerce. Therefore, NBAD will continue to organise and support world class conferences to cement Abu Dhabi's role in financial industry and as a global destination as well as achieving NBAD’s vision to be recognised as the World’s Best Arab Bank.”
