Even if you leave the UAE, your account will not be affected.

We work with Interactive Brokers (IB) to offer you global coverage, and ensure that your portfolio follows you should stay in the UAE or move elsewhere (we understand, we love traveling too). Your account is in your name and is held with IB, our selected broker, and custodian.

Here's Investopedia's definition of the term custodian:
A custodian is a financial institution that holds customers' securities for safekeeping so as to minimize the risk of their theft or loss. A custodian holds securities and other assets in electronic or physical form. Since they are responsible for the safety of assets and securities that may be worth hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars, custodians generally tend to be large and reputable firms. A custodian is sometimes referred to as a custodian bank.

Should you move, we advise you to inform us of this change and look into the potential tax implications of the new country you are moving to. For example, there are no capital gains taxes in the UAE (Woohoo!),
but these might apply once you become a resident in another country.
