Fintech Robos, a Bahrain-based firm specializing in savings and pensions technology and in organizing financial conferences, and the General Arab Insurance Federation (GAIF), the Egypt-headquartered Arab international body focused on insurance and reinsurance, have collaborated to promote platforms boosting financial literacy, financial inclusion, pension saving systems, and actuarial business in financial and economic sectors across the Arab countries.

According to the agreement, Fintech Robos has become an official active partner in the three major annual events organized by the latter in Arab markets, the Arab Pension & Social Insurance Conference, Arab Savings & Financial Literacy Conference, and the Arab Actuarial Conference. The agreement was signed by Mr. Shakib Abou Zaid, Secretary General of GAIF, and Mr. Ebrahim K Ebrahim, CEO of Fintech Robos.

“We are so proud to be partnering and working together with this highest regional Arab insurance authority in various fields, to further promote the development of the financial industry, particularly in actuarial business, pension savings systems, financial culture and financial inclusion across Arab societies.”

“GAIF seeks to develop the regional insurance industry and achieve economic integration between the insurance markets in the Arab world. Hence, we are very pleased to work with like-minded institutions that share these visions with us in the Arab countries. Fintech Robos is certainly a key player in this space, and their platforms significantly complement the Arab financial industry and are moving in the right direction,” Mr. Abou Zaid said.

According to this partnership, the two parties will work together to enrich and expand these platforms over the coming years to increase institutional awareness within the financial industry on potential business opportunities and partnerships they will bring, as part of the continuous development of the Arab insurance markets.
