Since its foundation, MEIRA has grown significantly and now has a well-established presence in all countries across the region. We count some of the largest and most well-known listed companies in the Middle East among our members, and work closely with exchanges and regulators to achieve our common goal of improved transparency and efficiency of regional capital markets through the implementation of international IR best practice.
MEIRA continues to be the only professional body in the Middle East promoting and sharing the views of listed firms, capital market advisors as well as the investment community in the region.
For any regional company, joining MEIRA is an indication that it recognises the importance of sound IR, transparency and communications practices. Frequently our members are the main drivers of IR developments in the region and, by pioneering various initiatives with the support of the Association’s Executive team and Board, they are a contributing factor to the overall improvement of regional markets.
Association Membership packages have been tailored for listed companies, capital market advisors, private companies and individuals, each providing their own benefits.
