Banking-as-a-Service in Egypt and what the partnership entails

BaaS is a model in which banks integrate their digital banking services directly into the products of other non-bank businesses leveraging APIs and is believed to play a transformative role in enhancing financial inclusion and bolstering entrepreneurship potential across the world by facilitating access to banking tools and resources of the like of credit, savings accounts, and payment processing. 

BaaS platforms such as the one being launched are set to offer tailored financial products that address the unique needs of Egypt’s financial institutions, banks, and fintechs, helping foster both innovation and growth. Per the announcement, the initiative marks a step forward in modernising and enhancing the region’s financial services landscape, with the joint BaaS venture set to help Egypt-based financial institutions transform by providing them with a full range of digital banking, neo-banking, lending, and payment solutions.

When commenting on the news, eFinance Investment Group officials expressed excitement towards being an enabler for banks and fintech startups through their advanced, secure infrastructure, digital investments, and partnerships with industry leaders to enable a simplified transition, in line with Egypt’s vision for a cashless society and its efforts to promote financial inclusion and boost the fintech industry.
