Astana International Exchange Connects with Regional Markets Through Tabadul Hub

The Astana International Exchange (AIX) has joined the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange's (ADX) Tabadul Hub, a digital platform designed to foster regional integration and broaden investment opportunities. This collaboration signifies a significant step towards a more interconnected financial landscape across the Middle East and Central Asia.

The Tabadul Hub, launched in July 2022, operates on a mutual market access model. This means that brokerage houses affiliated with member exchanges can remotely access and trade on each other's platforms. AIX's entry into the Hub expands the reach of the Tabadul network, bringing together investors from Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in a seamless digital marketplace.

This integration is expected to enhance liquidity for both exchanges. By allowing investors on the ADX to trade securities listed on the AIX, and vice versa, the Tabadul Hub creates a wider pool of potential buyers and sellers. This can lead to more efficient price discovery and potentially attract new listings to both exchanges.

The AIX and ADX collaboration extends beyond just cross-border trading. The agreement also paves the way for increased cooperation between the two exchanges in various areas. This could include joint marketing initiatives, educational programs for investors, and the sharing of best practices in regulation and market operations.

The Astana International Exchange's integration with the Tabadul Hub is a positive development for investors seeking to diversify their portfolios and access new markets. The digital platform offers a convenient and efficient way to trade securities across the region, fostering a more vibrant and interconnected financial ecosystem.

For instance, Freedom Finance Global, a brokerage firm from Kazakhstan, has already been onboarded as a Tabadul Hub broker. Similarly, BHM Capital, a UAE-based firm, has become a trading member on the AIX through Tabadul. These initial steps highlight the platform's potential to bring together a wider range of market participants from both sides.

Looking ahead, the AIX's membership in the Tabadul Hub is likely to act as a catalyst for further growth and development of the Kazakh bourse. As more investors gain access to Kazakh equities through the digital platform, the AIX could see a rise in trading activity and potentially attract new listings from companies in Kazakhstan and the broader Central Asian region.

The Astana International Exchange's connection with the Tabadul Hub marks a significant milestone in the journey towards regional financial integration. By creating a digital bridge between Kazakhstan and the UAE, this collaboration opens doors for new investment opportunities, fosters liquidity growth, and paves the way for future partnerships between the two exchanges.
