CNBC Arabiya, the 24 hour Arabic financial and business TV channel, has entered into an agreement with UAE broker Al Ramz Securities to allow viewers to safely buy shares online.

CNBC Arabiya will tap into Al Ramz’s Borsat online trading platform during its TV show Al Mahfaza. To be broadcast under the auspices of the UAE’s Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA), CNBC viewers will be able to monitor the markets and securely execute sales and purchase orders.

“We believe that the ability to provide industry services incorporating the latest electronic trading brokerage platforms in the securities' market is an important factor in promoting client confidence in our company. Al Ramz Borsat is a comprehensive system that will certainly meet the needs and requirements of CNBC clients, in an easy, safe and effective manner," said Al Dandashi, chief executive, Al Ramz Securities.

CNBC Arabiya provides viewers with Middle East business news and stock market summaries, regional corporate news, personal finance updates, as well as economic and financial developments in Europe and America – and how they impact the Middle East.
