How Fintech is transforming Saudi Arabia

Since 2018, fintech in Saudi Arabia has achieved staggering growth in a way that promises to transform the country and its position in the global economy.

“Vast, Fast & Ahead of Schedule” tells the extraordinary financial transformation story of Saudi Arabia, and the world should be paying attention.
