This remarkable achievement is a testament to our efforts to continue to improve banking services and products offered in order to meet the demands of customers and their expectations; and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the entire team for their efforts which have led to this recognition.”

“This achievement is also a reflection of the success of KFH Jazeel Banking, which is only in the first year of its launch. The application provides a comprehensive Fintech platform for all banking and community services, enabling us to push the boundaries of innovation by providing diverse digital solutions in order to meet the needs of new and existing customers. The mobile application aims to redefine the banking experience of our customers, and we are committed to offer unique features with every update released,” he added.
