Embracing Open Banking

event in Bahrain

In December, we cohosted a closed-door event with Bahrain FinTech Bay. The event brought together leading banks and financial institutions, including Bahrain Islamic Bank - BisB, Kuwait Finance House, Standard Chartered Bank, American Express, and Arab Bank, alongside the esteemed regulator, the Central Bank of Bahrain.

Together, we delved into insightful discussions on open banking within the Kingdom. From exploring use cases to navigating challenges and celebrating progress, the event offered a perspective on the evolving financial landscape.

Reflecting on the event, we're inspired by the collaborative spirit and forward-thinking discussions that unfolded. The journey toward open banking is shaping up to be transformative, and we're excited to be at the forefront of this evolution.

New Partnerships


We are excited to have partnered with Hakbah هكبه, the leading KSA-based fintech savings platform. Hakbah enables users to save and access funds through social savings, making purposeful savings accessible and beneficial to everyone, especially the underbanked.

Through this partnership, Hakbah will streamline onboarding, enhance data processing for its customers, and reduce the cost of its service.


We've partnered up with Salla E-Commerce Platform, the largest e-commerce platform in KSA. Salla enables merchants in the Kingdom to set up online stores in minutes, simplifying payments, shipping, inventory management, and marketing.

Through this partnership, Salla will leverage our Account Verification product to validate account ownership for accurate fund disbursements, providing a safer, simpler, and faster experience.
