International professional services provider Equiom has opened a new office in the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC). Operating as Equiom (Isle of Man) Limited (DIFC Branch), the opening of the office is the next step in the company's continued expansion and investment in the region. The opening of Equiom in the DIFC marks the sixteenth office globally and the fourth office for the Equiom Group in the UAE. Equiom made its first entry into the UAE with the acquisition of Links Group in September 2016. Links is a corporate services provider with offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that helps organizations set up in the region. In November 2018, Equiom acquired HOLT consultancy, a compliance and risk management service provider located in the DIFC. The opening of Equiom in the DIFC builds on the organization's growing presence in the Middle East and aims to provide a wider breadth of services for the group in the region. The new Equiom office in the DIFC is regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) and will be responsible for the promotion of a full range of trust and fiduciary services. The company's offering aims to meet the individual requirements of clients including high net worth individuals, family offices, and corporations.
