Wio Bank, ADGM Wio Bank, the region’s first platform bank regulated by the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), announced a partnership with Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international financial centre of the UAE’s capital, to bolster collective efforts to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UAE to gain access to key banking services quickly and efficiently.

With this partnership, Wio will extend its Wio Business platform to SMEs registered with ADGM and provide them with fast-tracked application submission, in addition to a slew of benefits including the opportunity to open a Zero Balance account with a one-month free trial, free debit card and cheque book, virtual debit cards, invoicing features and one of the best foreign currency conversion rates for international outward and inward remittances.

Setting this partnership apart is the fact that through API integration between both parties, customers do not have to upload any company documents such as the trade license, Memorandum of Association, shareholder passport and other details about the company for verification—making the customer journey seamless and more efficient.

Speaking of the partnership, Mona Walid, Chief People Officer and Head of Strategic Partnerships at Wio Bank, said, “At Wio, we strive to deliver the utmost convenience to the SME community to help them accelerate their business growth. We do this by tying up with like-minded partners that are committed to driving the government’s vision to empower SMEs, while also standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers. Through our collaboration with ADGM, we will further ramp up our efforts to provide seamless access to financial services to SMEs, entrepreneurs, and freelancers, and facilitate their growth journey.”

Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, Chief Operating Officer at ADGM said, “ADGM is delighted to partner with Wio Bank to support and foster the growth of small, medium and emerging enterprises in the UAE and enhance their ability to access financial services, through direct and indirect financing solutions and digital services. This agreement is an extension of our continuous commitment to develop the financial sector in Abu Dhabi in line with the strategy ADGM to attract reputable entities, best practices and financial solutions, in addition to talented people.”

He added, “Supporting small, medium and emerging enterprises is a key pillar of the economy and is in line with the UAE’s economic diversification agenda. It also reflects our commitment to create a supportive ecosystem for businesses. We are eager to work with Wio Bank and contribute towards the growth of the Abu Dhabi economy.”
