Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), one of the fastest-growing exchanges in the world, is collaborating with Eureeca, a global investment platform matching individual and institutional investors with growth and pre-IPO companies. This collaboration aims to bolster accessibility to ADX IPOs in a fully compliant manner, appealing to growing interest from regional and global retail investors and high net-worth individuals (HNWIs).




The collaboration between ADX and Eureeca capitalises on the Exchange’s robust e-IPO investor portal, highlighting its commitment to simplifying the IPO process. By utilising Eureeca’s efficient capabilities, ADX seeks to improve investors’ access to IPOs and enable a more efficient process for international investors.

Sam Quawasmi, CEO and Co-founder of Eureeca, said:We are proud to be collaborating with ADX as the first exchange to launch this revolutionary product, which showcases ADX’s pioneering mindset and technological advancement. Being the first collaboration of its kind to enable international investors to subscribe to an IPO frictionlessly, whilst having the ability to sell at any given moment post the IPO’s listing on the exchange via the Eureeca platform, is truly a game-changer. This initiative
