BENEFIT FINTECH LABCreating a Fintech Enabling Environment in Bahrain

What is Benefit Fintech Lab

At BENEFIT, we don’t just support the banking and financial sector but also the government, SMEs and other private sector entities. Our Fintech Lab was established with the very same view; to help create a Fintech enabling environment in Bahrain with and for all our stakeholders.

The lab acts as an idea generator linking university students with SMEs and other stakeholders. Here, we test and exhibit exciting new concepts in coordination with international Fintech hubs. We believe in fostering a culture of R&D, directed towards enabling continuous growth for the country, our partners and ourselves.

As a strategic partner of CBB’s Digital Lab, FinHub 973, we are glad to be working towards the national direction to make Bahrain a regional Fintech hub and further cement Bahrain’s position as the region’s financial hub.

FinHub 973, by the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB), is the region’s first cross-border, digital innovation platform that connects and facilitates collaboration between financial institutions and fintechs under the supervision of the central bank. FinHub 973 enables local and global fintech’s to connect seamlessly with Bahrain’s financial institutions for exploring, testing, and prototyping on a centralised digital sandbox. FinHub973 integrates the technical testing and validation of digital solutions with the regulatory framework of the CBB. The platform also showcases qualified fintechs for collaboration, procurement, partnerships and investment within Bahrain’s ecosystem, while also interfacing with regulatory authorities to facilitate quicker and easier regulatory testing and supporting business scalability.

Key Focus Areas

Seamless Payments

Frictionless, streamlined payments are at the heart of effective digital payments. We believe such payments are the future of consumer transactions and hence work on bettering the payment process from both the vendor and customer sides.

Cashless Society

We are committed to building a cashless society, and are focused on enabling digital transactions to be the norm in the region. A modern society thrives on digital transactions, and through advanced research and analysis, our Fintech lab is leading the region in the right direction.

Big Data

Digital transactions offer a lot more scope for analysis of customer spending and behaviour.  Such big data will help formulate strategies based on trends and predictions, which will be useful for our vendors in product development and marketing.
