We open our first office in the Middle East
We are excited to announce that we have extended our global footprint further by opening a new office at the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC).
Strategically located between the East and West, DIFC is recognized as the leading financial center in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA). Located in the recently inaugurated Innovation Hub, part of the Dubai Future District, Napier’s new UAE base puts the RegTech provider at the center of the region’s largest collection of financial services companies.
Spokesperson at DIFC, said: “Many of the world’s top financial institutions are based here at the DIFC and it is a privilege to welcome Napier into the fold. Our new Innovation Hub is designed to strengthen and enrich the DIFC ecosystem by providing fintechs at all stages of their evolution with unparalleled access to a community of like-minded entrepreneurs, experts and technology innovators such as Napier.
“We want to connect banks and technology companies to create strong partnerships that will drive global innovation in the financial sector, from tier-one banks and global tech leaders to promising small and medium enterprises and start-ups.”
Greg Watson, Chief Operating Officer at Napier, said: “DIFC is recognized internationally as a leading global center for fintech and building a presence here will enable us to better serve our clients that operate both locally and in international markets. Innovations in technologies to improve financial compliance are a key part of the huge ambition that we see across the UAE as it strengthens its position as a modern global financial hub, so it’s very important for us to be here.”
