Arab Household Long-term Savings Conference 2021


Join us for two days of an interactive conference to navigate the neglected yet critical terrain of household savings and personal finance in MENA region. This brand-new regional event tackles financial literacy, financial education, and financial inclusion, as well as household financial resilience across the Arab world, through long-term savings. The conference sessions will address the following;

  • What’s the socio-economic imperative for household savings? What’s its economic power?
  • To turn MENA into savings economies:  what culture and which products do we need to build?
  • Why so much interest in financial literacy lately? What difference will it make?
  • Where can households save? What’s the ideal vehicle?
  • Will Fintech change the way people save? Will people make the shift to Fintech?
