AxiomSL, an award winning global provider of regulatory reporting and risk management solutions, announced today that it will further strengthen its client service in the Middle East with the opening of an office in the Dubai International Financial Centre.
The new office has been created in response to the evolving regulatory environment across the Middle East and Africa with the introduction of IFRS 9, FATCA/CRS and ongoing pressure from regulatory and financial reporting regimes, such as CBUAE/DFSA, SAMA, QCB, FSB (SA) and many more.
AxiomSL provides calculation, data management and regulatory reporting solutions for eight of the top ten largest institutions in the world by market capitalization.
The new Dubai office will enable AxiomSL to respond more flexibly to its clients at headquarters in the UAE and across the Middle East/Africa region. It will also allow clients in the area to access AxiomSL’s wealth of experience and expertise in other financial hubs across the world.
“We regularly review our global structure to ensure that we are able to serve our clients wherever they need our services,” said Ed Royan, Chief Operating Officer, EMEA, AxiomSL. “The timing is right for an office launch in Dubai as we are seeing growth opportunities in the region, building on our 25 year track record of assisting top tier banks efficiently manage their calculations and regulatory reporting.”
