Dubai, UAE : London-based technology provider Monty Finance revealed it is ramping up its international expansion plans with the roll out of cutting edge fintech solutions in the Middle East and will use the Seamless Middle East exhibition as a platform to engage with companies wanting to digitize their services and ride on the digital wave.

Overall, the fintech sector in the Middle East is growing rapidly with a compounded annual growth rate of 30 per cent with many businesses outside of the financial industry also looking to capitalize on digital trends. So now is the right time to push for digital-first solutions across sectors like payments and banking,” he added.

We offer a state of the art technology solution, flexible for numerous partnerships structure, enabling clients, banks, companies, and merchants to benefit from the new era.”
