One of the leading countries currently setting the bar in the developing fintech business in the Arab region is the United Arab Emirates. According to studies, UAE accounted for 47% of all financial tech deals and 69% of total funding in the MENA region
and is home to the majority of the region’s fintech start-ups. Driving this growth are these three key factors: a tech-savvy population who is enthusiastic to adopt fintech innovation, the progressive structure of the country’s financial free zones, and a
thriving capital sector willing to invest in fintech startups.
The UAE has made fintech adoption and growth a top national priority, paving the way for digital financial services to advance as a significant innovation that would modernize the economic structure of the region. Fintech businesses and start-ups in the
UAE are fully equipped with a holistic, dynamic ecosystem with an independent regulatory and English Common Law judicial system and global financial exchange to promote their innovative solutions and expansion plans to investors.
Statista forecasts that the Fintech market in the UAE will
exceed US$31bn by 2024, showing a growth of 10.5% in 2023 compared to 2022.
The growing trend leads to a great demand for fintech technology and white-label solutions. To assist companies and start-ups in the UAE looking to implement fintech projects, we’ve identified the top 5 Fintech software providers and offerings based on customers’
