Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) announced the secondary listing of GFH Financial Group B.S.C. The listing is set to further expand GFH’s investor base and enhance liquidity in its shares amid increased regional and international participation on the exchange.
To mark the occasion, ADX Managing Director and CEO, Saeed Hamad Al Dhaheri, and GFH’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Hisham Alrayes, rang the market-opening bell at ADX, where the Group’s shares began trading under the symbol “GFH”.
This is GFH’s fourth regional listing with its shares already listed and actively traded on the Bahrain Bourse, Boursa Kuwait and the Dubai Financial Market.
