5 December 2012 — UAE Nationals Graduate From DFSA's Leadership Programme
Dubai, UAE, 5 December 2012: The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) congratulated, earlier today, the latest group of UAE Nationals who have graduated from the DFSA's Tomorrow's Regulatory Leaders (TRL) Programme and become financial services regulators. The five Nationals, who joined the programme in 2010, have been promoted to Managers in the Supervision Division. Each Manager will now receive a portfolio of financial services firms and act as the lead supervisor, ensuring that their firms will comply with the rules and laws of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
To obtain this promotion and responsibility, the group has undertaken two years of specific regulatory training and on-job coaching under the guidance of their local and international colleagues. The graduates have also completed relevant professional qualifications to assist them in their career development.
Mr Ian Johnston, Chief Executive of the DFSA said: "It is our belief that the young talent we have on TRL Programme today will become our future leaders in financial services. We believe that is a worthy goal, and we will continue to commit time and resources to the development of financial services regulatory skills in each and every UAE National at the DFSA."
The Award ceremony today was attended by the DFSA Chairman, Mr Saeb Eigner; members of the DFSA Board of Directors and employees.
