WHY SAUDI?

Driven from top to bottom

Aligned with the National Transformation Program 2020 and Saudi Vision 2030, Saudi National Bank (SAMA) is committed to supporting FinTech activity in the financial services industry

Dr. Ahmed Alkholifey, SAMA Governor

A push in finance

Advancement in technology, changes for financial products, competition in financial services along with regulatory support are all driving a new wave of FinTech companies, start-ups and investments that have drawn attention.

Creating expectations

The country has seen a persistent use of FinTech and related technologies of late. In fact, Vision 2030 has pushed for a diversified and effective financial sector to support the development of the national economy which has led to the creation of the Financial Sector Development (FSD) programme, which has led to the faster adoption of FinTech.

Humble beginnings

In spite of growing prospects, the Saudi FinTech industry is still at a nascent stage in terms of infrastructure and regulatory frameworks. Authorities like SAMA and CMA are working rigorously to provide opportunities for FinTech start-ups to commercialize and expand to meet the demands put forward by vision 2030.
