Tarabut Gateway, KSA, Dubai Financial Services Authority, Dubai International Financial Centre, Financial Services, Account Information Services, Payment Initiation Services, FinTech, MEASA, UAE, MENATarabut Gateway announced four new key banking partnerships in KSA. As part of its expansion in Saudi Arabia and the developments in Open Banking, Tarabut Gateway revealed it has been selected by some of the leading banks in KSA as a partner including: Riyad Bank, Saudi British Bank (SABB), Alinma Bank and Banque Saudi Fransi (BSF).

The KSA market is ideally positioned for the coming Open Banking revolution, as the country has prioritised financial sector transformation as part of the Financial Sector Development Program, under the Saudi Vision 2030 plan for economic and social reform. Within this, KSA has announced its ambition to go cashless, aiming for 70% non-cash transactions by 2030.

Abdulla Almoayed, Chief Executive Officer of Tarabut Gateway said, “We are delighted to have been selected to partner with many of KSA’s leading banks. KSA is on the cusp of Open Banking driving rapid innovation and transforming the Kingdom’s financial services. The country’s vision is ambitious and achievable, and we look forward to being a core part of the Open Banking ecosystem.”

Emad Kashgari, Senior Vice President / Head of Digital Innovation & Partnership Section at Riyad Bank shared, “SAMA has been a key pillar in the financial sector’s development, and KSA’s Open Banking evolution. At Riyad Bank, we aim to continue being at the forefront of innovation and providing customers with enhanced digital offerings and customer experience through Open Banking adoption.”

Additionally, Alinma Bank has stated, “Alinma Bank is pleased to be an open banking partner of choice through its partnership with Tarabut Gateway. This relationship, along with Alinma’s participation in the regional network of Open Banking partner banks, will allow Alinma to continue providing enhanced digital offerings that are tailored to customer needs, with the innovation and Shariah compliance that customers expect. Such partnerships allow Alinma to enhance its reputation for excellence, a reputation that was recently reaffirmed by Forbes Middle East, which ranked Alinma as the top bank in Saudi Arabia for 2022.”

Musaifer AlOsaimi, Chief Information Officer at SABB said, “At Saudi British Bank, we continue to invest in being an active role in developing KSA’s financial sector through innovation and customer experience. Additionally, through Open Banking, we are committed to our role in achieving the Kingdom’s vision, supporting economic growth, and safeguarding financial stability.”

Michael Cunningham, Chief Strategy & Digital Officer at BSF said, “With innovation and customer experience taking precedence in BSF’s business strategy and through our adoption of Open Banking technology and building an API-based testing sandbox, BSF can stimulate further innovation and collaboration within the Fintech space in KSA.”

Using the Company’s platform-agnostic solutions, traditional financial institutions and FinTechs can connect and build their own apps on top of Tarabut Gateway’s platform, offering payment services, digital wallets, and multiple other use cases, in addition to a unified and easy to use developer portal.
