ADGM Welcomes Grant Thornton to its list of Professional Firms
Grant Thornton joins the competition by opening their 4th UAE office in ADGM. The global professional services firm is one of the fastest growing firms in the region in recent years and have a longstanding legacy in the UAE.
“We have been operating in the UAE since 1966 and we have seen enormous changes over the years. Opening an office in ADGM is the natural next step for Grant Thornton to move in line with the UAE as it goes from strength to strength as the leading international financial services centre in the MENA region.”
Mr. Hisham Farouk, CEO of Grant Thornton UAE.
The opening of the ADGM office coincided perfectly with FinTech Abu Dhabi, where Grant Thornton sponsored and supported various activities, including the Islamic FinTech Category, which is new for this year.
Samer Hijazi, Partner and Head of Abu Dhabi shares his view of the expansion;
“Grant Thornton shares the vision of ADGM to be a major contributor to the Abu Dhabi diversification and growth strategy.
This launch is testimony to the growth and progress ADGM has achieved in delivering this strategy and reflects Grant Thornton’s long-term commitment to both Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE market.”
