How did it all start?

BENEFIT was established in November 1997 by 17 commercial banks as the National ATM and Point of Sale switch of Bahrain. It was initially licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) to be ‘the provider of ancillary services for the financial sector,’ and soon expanded to cover markets outside Bahrain.
