The combined bank proudly offers an unrivalled range of local and international payment solutions in Saudi Arabia. During the event SABB will meet current and future partners to offer commercial, financing and multi-payment solutions for local and international organisations.

Commenting on the event, Ghada Aljarbou, SABB GM of Global Liquidity and Cash Management, said: “We are delighted to showcase our unique range of services and the exciting opportunities in the Saudi market on the global stage. Our merger with Alawwal Bank has created a more powerful banking franchise, with the increased scale to support a variety of payments needs and facilitate growth in domestic and international trade. Sibos is a great opportunity for us to explore new growth opportunities."
