Vahie added:


“We are delighted to be partnering with IFZA to provide its Partners and Licensees with cutting-edge banking services. With our curated financial solutions, we aim to support them in their business journeys and accelerate seamless transactions for customers.”

In a recent study conducted by IFZA, 50% of the respondents cited opening a bank account as one of the biggest challenges when setting up a business, due to lengthy application processes, difficulty in compliance or lack of information. Recognising the challenges entrepreneurs face, IFZA’s priority remains to support its Professional Partners and Licensees through bespoke services that aim to make doing business as easy as possible.

Using a unique link, IFZA Licensees can sign up for Wio Business and access easy and user-friendly digital banking solutions. IFZA registered businesses will be able to seamlessly open a fully digital corporate bank account within just a few days and without having to visit a physical location.

Wio Business is designed to provide start-ups, freelancers, and SMEs with access to banking services seamlessly, while giving them the opportunity to move forward with innovative beyond-banking services. It provides simplified and fully digital business account opening, personalised options and seamlessly integrated services that are built around each client’s needs, helping them automate their admin, be in control of their spending with unlimited virtual cards for their team, create various Saving Spaces for VAT, rent, etc., and focus on growing their business.

Wio Bank recently also partnered with Meydan Freezone offering a similar service to those members.
