“DFM is committed to implement IR best practices considering its significant role in strengthening relations between listed companies and investor base. As the first publicly listed exchange in the region, DFM Company leads by example; hence, we have established the IR section in 2008, which provides an effective link with our shareholders,” Fahima Al Bastaki, Executive Vice President and Head of Business development of DFM said.
“Moreover, DFM is actively promoting IR best practices amongst listed companies through direct dialogue, organizing workshops as well as publishing IR guides.
