Ten years on from the inaugural Middle East Banking Innovation Summit, growth in the fintech industry in the MENA region is continuing to gather speed. Whilst digital transformation is occurring throughout; with significant developments occurring in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Lebanon, the UAE continues to hold its position as the region’s largest fintech hub as the banking sector joins the global trend of technology transformation and intense digitization.
