The expertise we have accumulated over many years through our office in Saudi Arabia and other leading Islamic knowledge centers has enables us to develop a range of award-winning Shariah-compliant solutions to help in addressing these opportunities while seamlessly integrating with the global banking system,"
said Khalid Faraj Al-Said, Managing Director and General Manager, ITS.
