Investopia, SALT to host key leadership forum in Abu Dhabi

Investopia, the global investment platform launched by the UAE, has announced a new strategic partnership with SALT, a premier global thought leadership forum, that will see the duo collaborate for a joint event to be held next year in Abu Dhabi. 
As strategic partners, SALT and Investopia will jointly organise an invitation-only conference featuring the world’s leading investors, entrepreneurs and policy experts. It will mark Investopia’s second annual conference and SALT’s second Middle East edition, following the success of the 2019 event.
A key entity, Investopia has been designed to drive global investments, generate growth, accelerate innovation, and contribute to the prosperity of future generations.
Its mandate is to position the UAE as the “leading catalyst” for advancing Future & Now Economies and understanding Future Investment Trends, said a statement from the group. 
Investopia is supported by a number of local and global partners including Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development,, BlackRock, Deloitte Middle East, Accenture Middle East, and Sharjah FDI Office (Invest in Sharjah).
The agreement was signed by CEO Mohamed Naser Al Zaabi and Chairman of SALT Anthony Scaramucci in the presence of Abdulla Bin Touq Al Marri, UAE Minister of Economy and Chairman of Investopia, and Mohamed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of ADDED at a ceremony held at SALT New York 2022.
On the tieup, Al Marri said: "Investopia’s main objective is to create a global ecosystem for investment. Through this partnership, the duo will collaborate to bring together investors and business leaders from all over the world to discuss trends shaping the future of investment and identify investment opportunities in sectors that will define the economy in years to come."
Investopia’s first annual conference, which took place in March in Dubai during Expo 2020, successfully initiated strategic business dialogues across 12 vital economic sectors, such as education, renewable energy, supply chain, logistics, space, agri-tech, and healthcare.
"We are thrilled to bring SALT back to the UAE, which is an important crossroads of capital and epicenter of innovation,” remarked Scaramucci. 
"The debut editions of both Investopia and SALT Middle East were transformational events, and we can’t wait to collaborate to host what will be one of the premier gatherings on the global calendar," he stated.
Al Shorafa said the gathering will be hosted in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED).
"Against the backdrop of a continuously evolving global market, convening with international peers to tackle current trade and investment headwinds, assessing economic indicators and exchanging expertise and perspectives is of vital importance if we are to stay ahead and pre-empt for shifts in market trajectories," he stated. 
"This is the basis behind creating Investopia, to be able to engage the views and case studies of various international jurisdictions and operations, and why we are seeking partners like SALT," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
