OPINION: A sense of purpose: DIFC expands scope of its foundations

The Dubai International Financial Centre [DIFC] did it again. Since its establishment as a special economic zone in 2004, the DIFC has been at the forefront of innovation, continuously dedicating itself to improving its proposition and making a positive impact on the regional business ecosystem and beyond.

Over the years, the DIFC has led a legacy planning (r)evolution by introducing an array of innovative wealth management tools aimed at families. The breakthrough DIFC Trust, Foundation regime, Prescribed Company regime, as well as Fund regime all contributed to making the DIFC a globally recognised wealth management centre.

DIFC Regulatory initiatives were aplenty in 2023: the launch of the Family Wealth Centre, the introduction of a simplified Family Office regime – Family Arrangements Regulations.
