• I want to invest in ETFs
    In the Middle East ETF investing is fairly straightforward, you just need to set up an account with an investment platform like Internaxx and then choose which ETF to buy. The best low cost index funds are usually Blackrock or Vanguard. If you don't have time to research yourself and need help building an investment portfolio, there are a number of wealth management companies in Dubai that can do it for you - just keep an eye on their fees! Hope this helps :)

  • Life insurance advice in Dubai
    As far as I am aware, you can't buy life insurance online in Dubai so you'll have to deal with an insurance broker. Even if you go direct to an insurance company in the UAE they will refer you onto a broker. I have found the life insurance calculator on Life Happens really useful - hope this helps :D
