United Fintech Ensures Continued Digital Transformation Throughout UAE With DIFC Office Expansion

The UAE has established itself as a hub for innovation, especially in the financial sector. Looking to further cement the region’s frontrunning position, United Fintech, a digital transformation platform, has opened a new office in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

On a mission to drive digital innovation, offer transformative solutions and enhance the capabilities of fintechs worldwide, opening a new office in the DIFC will give United Fintech a greater ability to serve banks and financial institutions in the region. United Fintech’s partners, particularly Athena, the SaaS solution provider, have made this move possible.

The ability for the buy-side to have a truly cloud-native solution that can keep clients’ data within the state is a game changer,” says Raj Rathor, head of EMEA Sales at Athena.

“Growing our footprint throughout the GCC represents our commitment to the region’s buy-side community, our GCC clients and acts as a strategic milestone for the entire United Fintech group.”
