The new company is focused on establishing an enhanced and effective fintech ecosystem through transforming its existing financial services companies, in addition to launching new ventures with compelling product offerings and building strategic partnerships with established companies and startups.

Furthermore, FINTX is expected to diversify Emirates Post Group’s portfolio by expanding its footprint within the fintech industry.

According to the statement, “The new company will also focus on building an efficient fintech ecosystem as well as provide a suitable setting for the synergy of all types of financial technology services. It will also provide a platform for investors, incumbents, and innovators to collaborate and create the digital financial services of the future, for the UAE and beyond.”

FINTX will own, oversee, and transform the existing financial services companies of Emirates Post Group, which includes Wall Street Exchange Centre, and Instant Cash.
