Aside from the UAE, the company has been active for over a year in several Arab markets including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain. The Munich-headquartered firm has offices in London, Zurich, Moscow, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taipei, Shenzhen and Kochi.
The office, which officially opened in Dubai in mid-October under the name EQS Group FZ-LLC, is now the sales and customer support hub for the Middle East.
Dirk Wagner will lead operations in the new company. He commented on his new role: “A growing recognition and awareness of the importance of investor relations in the region, both among business managers and stock market operators, has helped EQS establish important customer relationships as well as support multiple issuers in investor communications with our unique technology.”
Achim Weick, founder and CEO of EQS Group: “We’ve already learned a great deal about the market and its requirements and we’re confident that our approach to digitalising investor relations work, which has been proven so successful in Europe and Asia, will also offer great added value to investor relations managers in the Middle East. It is a win-win situation: the Middle East offers EQS great potential for growth while the companies in this region’s still young market profit from our know-how.”
