Set up in 2004, the DIFC provides a secure and efficient platform for businesses and financial institutions and has grown into one of the top 10 onshore financial centers in the world.
DIFC provides one of the most flexible and robust licensing and regulatory environments in the region and made a paradigm shift with an independent regulator, DFSA. DIFC district has come a long way and matured into more than a place to work with retail outlets, cafes and restaurants, art galleries, hotels and residential apartments.
