Middle-East & Africa

London is the undisputed overseas listing venue of choice for companies from the Middle East and Africa.

More than 120 companies from Africa with a combined market capitalisation in excess of $70 billion have chosen to list on our markets - the largest concentration of African publicly-quoted companies other than in Johannesburg. London’s choice of markets and unparalleled deep pools of global  institutional capital has helped to support Africa’s unfaltering economic growth in sectors including natural resources, infrastructure, media, aviation and financial services.

More than 40 companies from the MENA region have a home on the London Stock Exchange – they include some of the Middle East’s biggest companies - DP World (UAE), Orascom Telecom (Egypt) and Qatar Commercial Bank  and Ooreedoo from Qatar. Recent listings by  Al Noor and NMC Health of UAE and their subsequent inclusion in the FTSE UK series are demonstrative of the high standards of disclosure and governance in the Middle East companies on our markets.
