The Dubai Diamond Exchange, a DMCC initiative, plans to host three seminars on diamond financing this year, underscoring the growing importance of the issue for the global diamond industry.

The subject has been much debated at the Dubai Diamond Conference 2015, held from April 21-22, with more than 150 industry experts joining in the fifth and final panel of the event, Diamond Finance.

The panel was composed of Rajiv Jain, the Regional Head for ABN AMRO Bank's Diamond & Jewellery Clients in the Middle East; Santosh Nair, Unit Head – Large Corporates – Mashreq UAE; Kishore Lall, Global Head – Diamond & Jewelry of Standard Chartered Bank; George Abraham, General Manager – Strategic Growth Sectors of Emirates NBD; Davy Blommaert, Unit Head – Precious Metals & Diamonds of National Bank of Fujairah; Jim Konjuhim, Business Development Manager of Brinks Global Services, UAE, Russell Mehta Managing Director of Rosy Blue India.

Gautam Sashittal, Chief Executive Officer of the DMCC, said: “The diamond trade in Dubai is ably supported by a growing number of local and international banks bringing about new methods of financing the diamond industry. This will ensure that Dubai's pre-eminence as one of the leading global centres for the diamond industry continues to grow.”

The conference panel debated the most important topics to the diamond finance industry including transparency and the ways in which banks are granted access to company data. Peter Meeus, Chairman of the Dubai Diamond Exchange and panel moderator, added: “Financing is the single most important issue for the diamond sector at present.”
