In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, fintech is growing fast with regulators and governments considering the impact that financial technology companies can have on the broader economy.

Over the span of last decade, fintech start-ups in the region have raised over $100 million in funding, and investment was predicted to double by 2020.

Digital disruption and the Middle East

Industrialisation is expected to play a key role in driving sustainable economic growth across the Middle East.

While 2020 wasn’t exactly what anyone expected, fintech software development companies in the Middle East are primed to offer ways to advance impending digital transformation in the oil and gas sector which is apparently a $3.3 trillion global energy industry, but came to a $2.1 trillion mark in 2021.

Stifling fintech growth

This is making banks respond better to fintech and invest in the ecosystem.

Many Islamic banks are investing in digital initiatives to make their operations more efficient and scalable.

Boosting financial inclusion

Financial inclusion is critical for economic diversity and growth across the region, and fintech has become an innovative way to bridge the divide and provide cheaper services to the unbanked.

Fintech focuses on solving customer challenges instead of forcing them to be banking clients, thereby giving companies the ability to run lean businesses and power to leverage a bank’s processing, issuing and acceptance systems.

In the Middle East, fintech as one of the strongest sectors of the economy, has opened up opportunities by empowering SMBs, thereby supporting Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision that aims to reduce the dependency on oil revenues.
