Additionally, BEYON Money is the only Super App in Bahrain that will develop for its users a marketplace to access a wide range of financial products and services, offered by several providers.

Commenting on the introduction of BEYON Money, Batelco’s Chairman Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Khalifa said, “The government in Bahrain, under the leadership of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, has worked to create the ideal ecosystem for Innovation in FinTech and the digital economy. Accordingly, this is the ideal time for us to launch this exciting brand, BEYON Money, in Bahrain and look forward to expanding the services in due course into the GCC.”

“BEYON Money will play a vital role in supporting the advancement of payments innovation and digital ecosystems by accelerating consumer digital adoption of financial solutions, anticipating the demand for seamless, fast and secure digital money flow.”

BEYON Money CEO Roberto Mancone said, “The market has seen exponential growth in Digital Payments across the Middle East with a rapid shift for consumers and merchants towards digital.  BEYON Money’s mission is to make digital financial instruments more accessible, easy to understand, transparent and value driven, giving customers greater degrees of choice.”

“At BEYON Money we are focused on delivering a customer centric experience that embeds several required financial services in one platform. With BEYON Money we will establish and continuously evolve local and international partnerships for the digital marketplace aimed at creating value for clients across the GCC.”
