About ADX

Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX.) is a leading stock exchange situated in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). This exchange serves many industries including but not limited to banking, insurance, services, hotels, etc., with global reach and impact!

The growth of this exchange has helped economic diversification and the proliferation of sustainable finance. And in light of this, a new trading floor was planned, built and opened at the exchange in September 2021. This new floor offers modern infrastructure and technological facilities to support all stakeholders.

To make the above possible, Wavetec was brought on board in February 2021 to provide real-time information display systems, capable of digital signage, and management solutions for the trading hall.

Project requirements

The developers wanted to afford the investor with a seamless and simple visitor journey. The investor would visit the trading hall, guided, informed and engaged by Wavetec screens that display real-time financial market data. Also, the ADX switched locations and designed the new space according to modern standards.

ADX required that the facilities available to investors and traders be industry-leading, optimized and integratable for additional convenience.
