About the Event

The Financial world is undergoing sweeping changes. Open Banking is one such technology that is opening horizons for growth in the financial sector. The Saudi Central Bank (SAMA) is working diligently to support the Kingdom's economic growth and safeguard financial stability. In line with these efforts, Saudi Central Bank has launched the Open Banking Program. The recently announced Open Banking Framework by the Saudi Central Bank provides clear directives on the requirements that must be adhered for banks and fintechs to provide open banking services in the Kingdom.

We are pleased to bring to you our “7th Open Banking Conference” that will shed light on the transformative potential of Open Banking and its role in unlocking a new era of financial services in the Kingdom.
