With his legendary foresight and vision, Dr. Shetty identified expatriate aspirations to contribute back to the loved ones left behind in their home countries. This led to the birth of UAE Exchange. Over 34 years after its inception, UAE Exchange is a leading global money transfer, foreign exchange and payment solutions brand with over 800 outlets across 45 countries. UAE Exchange has over 16,000 employees representing 40 nationalities. With a rapidly expanding customer base of more than 15 million customers, product portfolio, and network, it is one of the fastest growing corporate brands in the Middle East.
In order to achieve his dream of providing services across the entire healthcare value chain, Dr. Shetty founded Neopharma, the UAE based pharmaceutical manufacturer in 2003. Inaugurated by the then President of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam in Abu Dhabi, Neopharma is centred on using the concept of modular manufacturing following global benchmarks in manufacturing technology and putting in place efficient control mechanisms. Neopharma has its own research and development wing and offers quality medicines at affordable prices. At the same time it has contract manufacturing for international pharmaceutical giants across both innovator products as well as generic brands. Neopharma has relationships with Merck, Pfizer, Biocon, Astra Zeneca, Jubilant Pharma, Boots UK, Hetero Pharmaceuticals and many others.
