The Middle East & North Africa is widely accepted as one of the fastest growing markets in the banking and financial services sector. From Egypt issuing the first “green bond” in the region, to Saudi Arabia’s issuance of standalone digital banking licenses, the region is challenging more well-established global markets in the race to position as world-class financial hubs.
Recognising these rapid changes and evolving financial services landscape, MEED has partnered with leading financial services publications Retail Banker International and Private Banker International to introduce MENA Banking Excellence Summit + Awards.
This initiative is an extension of the long-running programmes like the RBI Asia Trailblazer awards, now in their 14th year, and PBI Global Wealth Awards, now in their 33rd year.
Following the successful launch of the Awards, which were run virtually, we are moving into 2023 with an in-person Summit and Awards reception
