Commenting on the launch, Mr. Rafik Nayed, Group CEO of Al Salam Bank, said, “It is currently a challenging period for the banking industry at large, but thanks to our ongoing strategy, we already had the requisite groundwork and contingencies in place which allowed us to better navigate the disruptive impact of the pandemic. We have successfully been able to maintain strong operations at the Bank, which allows us to continue to enhance our national network and improve our products and services, all the while making them more accessible to all.”
