The Dubai Financial Services Authority launched its prestigious Tomorrow’s Regulatory Leaders (TRL) Programme in 2006, having recognised the opportunity to make an important contribution towards the UAE’s Emiratisation initiative. The DFSA is investing in developing young Emiratis to become leaders in the financial sector, specifically in the area of financial regulation. The TRL Programme is a unique blend of formal training and work experience. It aims to deliver sustainable and enduring benefits to Emiratis, by providing not just a job, but by equipping them for long-term career advancement and future leadership. The programme aims to develop competence and confidence; and encourage a belief that hard work will contribute to the wellbeing of the UAE. The TRL Programme is committed to giving suitably qualified and motivated, new Emirati graduates the best possible chance to make a career in regulation and, over time, to become leaders in this area.
