Manama I March 26, 2023

The Bahrain based Al Baraka Group B.S.C ("ABG" / the “Group”) has announced two of its Units won the prestigious Islamic Finance News Awards for “Best Digital Offering”. The winners were selected based on an annual comprehensive referendum conducted by the Islamic Finance News magazine. Over 38,000 votes were cast this year, and the voting process was refined, allowing only local professionals to vote for banks in their respective domestic markets, thereby making the outcome a more accurate and representative reflection of the Islamic banking landscape.
Al Baraka Turk Participation Bank and Al Baraka Bank Limited – South Africa beat other innovative peers and scooped up their awards at the recently held awards ceremony in Dubai.
Meanwhile, Al Baraka Bank Tunisia’s ''Banecti'' Mobile Banking application won the Elected Product of the Year 2023 award, an award established 30 years ago in more than 45 countries around the world and in Tunisia since 2016. “Banecti” Mobile Banking application launched in October 2022 was selected as a finalist by a panel of experts based on its high standards of innovation and offering value added features for consumers in Tunisia.

ABG’s Units have begun launching new solutions and features as part of their digital transformation journey including advanced mobile banking applications, wallets, customer digital onboarding feature, backoffice automation, Chatbots, different open banking initiatives, and digital branches.
