Dubai Investments raises foreign ownership cap to 49 percent

Dubai Investments, the leading diversified investments company listed on the Dubai Financial Market, has raised foreign ownership limit in the company from the existing 35 percent to 49 percent. A proposal to this effect was approved by shareholders during the General Assembly Meeting held on 29th November. Raising the limit to 49 percent is part of a wider move by Dubai Investments to open up to international investors. The proposal assumes significance after the recent addition of Dubai Investments’ shares in the MSCI Emerging Market Index. In his address at General Assembly meeting, Sohail Faris Ghanim Al Mazrui, Chairman of Board of Directors of Dubai Investments, said, "The proposal to raise the cap to 49 percent of the capital was aimed at encouraging share ownership to more foreign investors. The company feels that there is an appetite among foreign investors to invest, which is restricted by keeping the cap at 35 percent."

The provisions of the special resolution to raise the limit is in line with the Federal Law No. 02 of 2015 relating to Commercial Companies. The foreign ownership cap on Dubai Investments shares was 20 percent from the date of its listing on the Dubai Financial Market in 2000 until 2014, when it was raised to 35 percent.
