CEO Message

Distinguished clients and guests,

Welcome to International Securities (IS), UAE’s most prominent securities brokerage firm based in Abu Dhabi, and part of the International Holding Company (IHC) since 2019.

Since our inception as First Gulf Financial Services, a brokerage firm formed by First Gulf Bank (now First Abu Dhabi Bank) in 2001, we have been growing strong and steady. Over the years, we have developed a niche reputation for our services, and now we stand as the number one broker in Abu Dhabi and UAE (ADX and DFM combined).

We remain focused in local market, where we foresee significant opportunities to grow and develop our franchisee further. We have executed some of the record transactions in ADX and DFM while providing best-in-class trading platform and research & advisory services.

Today, we carry forward our 20-year-old legacy under our new brand International Securities, as we work closely with our parent IHC Group towards building a strong financial service franchisee in Abu Dhabi and UAE.

I would like to personally invite all of our current and prospective clients, to allow us to demonstrate how we can build and strengthen our long-term partnership, and to help in their investment journey, going forward.

Yours faithfully,

Ayman Hamed
CEO, International Securities
