The banking sector is a key pillar of the UAE’s drive to diversify its economy which grew by 5.4 percent in 2016 to reach AED711b. However to ensure it’s continued growth, this sector is diversifying to stay agile in the face of consistent explicit and implicit threats, ranging from new and emerging external threats like cyber security, subdued oil prices to existing and recognized risks like conduct and regulatory change. These factors have pushed the banking sector to place more emphasis on growing their commercial banking business.

The corporate treasury has evolved considerably in the Middle East. This change has led to the corporate management placing greater importance on their treasury function and demanding more from their partner banks in the region. While the changing regulatory needs and liquidity requirements also have significantly altered the way banks lend money and who they lend it to. As the treasury functions of corporates operating in the Middle East become larger and more sophisticated, there has been an increase in investments towards digitization and new innovative practices to foster a closer & seamless relationship between corporate treasurers and their banking partners so as to retain them.

Taking note of this transitional phase in the sector, The Middle East Corporate Banking Forum, Dubai -UAE (12-13 September 2017, Dubai-UAE) aims to decode the trends, practices, challenges & future strategies for success that will be instrumental in shaping the complex landscape of this sector.

Nizardeen SVP, Head of Transaction Banking- Emirates Islamic Bank, Saif Al Bahri Al Hammadi VP-Global Transaction Banking, Head of Government and Public Sector Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank to name a few amongst many others.

The topics that will be highlighted during the event include Global Transaction Banking, Corporate Lending, Treasury & Trade Finance, Blockchain , Risk Assessment, Debt & Equity Capital Markets, New Role Of The Chief Risk Officer, GCC With And Beyond Oil among many other topics that will be addressed in detail during the duration of the event.
