GCC - Retail Banking Decision Makers Club


Retail banking executives are facing an environment of rare complexity, marked by increasing regulatory constraints, a tumultuous economic context and significant technological breakthroughs.

In order to increase the intensity and frequency of peer-to-peer exchanges in all the countries of the Arabian Peninsula and the Persian Gulf, Efma launched the "Club of Retail Banking Decision Makers in GCC" in 2021 in partnership with McKinsey&Company.

The countries concerned are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman.

The aim is to address in a user-friendly way the issues that concern managers while providing them with the most up-to-date synthetic documents. Three or four meetings are scheduled each year, usually hosted (physically or virtually) by one or other of the member banks.

The members of the Club are members in a personal capacity and are asked to be replaced, in case of impediment, only by a direct collaborator, in order to preserve the homogeneity of the group.

The CCG Retail Banking Decision Makers Club is under the joint responsibility of Fahim uz Zaman, Regional Manager Middle East at Efma, and Muthanna Muslet, Senior Partner in charge of Financial Institutions for the Middle East at McKinsey.
