Napier, provider of advanced anti-financial crime compliance solutions, has extended its global footprint by opening a new office at Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC), the global financial center and leading fintech hub in the MEASA region.
Strategically situated between East and West, DIFC is recognized as the leading financial center in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA). Located in the recently inaugurated Innovation Hub, part of the Dubai Future District, Napier’s new UAE base puts the regtech provider at the center of the region’s largest collection of financial services companies.
Napier already works on AI-led anti-financial crime solutions with many organizations across MEASA, including Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency, Central Bank of UAE, and directly with DIFC. The new UAE base forms part of a wider global strategy that sees the regtech firm now established in all key financial hubs across the world, working with firms on KYC, AML, and trade compliance.
Headquartered in London, Napier works with international customers and has a presence in North America, Australia, and Dubai, while its foothold in APAC was also strengthened recently with key senior hires from the industry and the addition of new offices in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
