GITEX Global 2023
From October 16th to 20th, we participated in GITEX Global 2023 alongside Tamkeen. It was an excellent opportunity for the team to showcase our journey, products, and services, engaging with industry leaders and enthusiasts. This event gave us a unique platform to strengthen existing relationships and forge new connections in the region.
In our latest blog, “Accelerating Better Decisions: The Data-Driven Approach”, we explore the challenges of traditional decision-making within financial services and how Open Banking is reshaping the landscape for the better. Discover how this innovative approach reshapes the industry, enables faster approvals, enhances accuracy, and fortifies fraud prevention measures. Read the full blog here.
Tariq Sanad, Tarabut’s CFO, recently participated as a panellist at Fintech Forward. The discussion on "Open Banking and Embedded Finance: Enabling Financial Inclusion" explored how these approaches make financial services more accessible to underserved communities. Tariq's insights highlighted our dedication to fostering inclusivity through innovative strategies and our proactive stance in shaping a more equitable financial landscape.
