Starting a Fintech in the UAE: What You Need to Know
The market space in the United Arab Emirates is blooming right now and has become the center of attraction for investors and businessmen. The country attracts billions of dollars in investments each year and has become the favorite birthplace of new, innovative businesses due to its enabling conditions. Especially in the fields of technology, the UAE government has made things extremely convenient, to promote tech startups in their flourishing economy.
As of now, FinTech, or financial technology is one of the most profitable business prospects to start in the UAE. The region’s financial services and banking industry is still inclined towards traditionalism whereas its tech-savvy population demands modern and convenient banking services. This is one of the main reasons why fintech start-ups are thriving in the UAE’s economic space, especially in its populous, metropolitan business hubs like Dubai!
The total fintech industry of the UAE is worth close to 40 billion US dollars, and with an annual growth rate of 15 percent, it is expected to cross the 50 billion mark in the near future! Dubai alone hosts close to a hundred fintech start-ups with a total of 1,500 employees. As a result, starting a fintech business in the United Arab Emirates means sure success and profitability, that is, if you know what you’re doing!
What is FinTech? – An Introduction
First of all, let’s understand what fintech businesses are. FinTech or Financial Technology businesses provide specialized financial management services or create software, applications, or technologies to help individuals, companies, and financial institutions (such as banks), access and manage their finances and clientele.
Due to the ongoing modernization of the financial services industry, changing customer demands, and increasing competition, almost every financial institution is striving to adopt the most advanced financial technologies, which FinTech businesses provide or create for them! These technologies enable them to efficiently perform day-to-day operations and provide the best services to their customers. This is the primary reason why the FinTech industry is booming globally.
The UAE FinTech Market
There is a huge demand for fintech in the United Arab Emirates. The country’s population and financial institutions are shifting from traditional towards modern banking methods and fintech companies are playing a pivotal role in enabling them with the necessary technologies. The UAE financial tech industry, as discussed earlier, is worth close to 40 billion US dollars with a growth rate of 15 percent, a rate that is only looking to further increase in the coming years!
To start not only a fintech company but any business in the UAE, it is important to first understand the business rules, regulations, laws of the country, and the licenses required. Particularly to start a fintech business, you must have the Innovation Testing License or ITL issued by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA). This license allows foreigners to do business in the UAE without actually living in the country. In addition to that, you must also register your company with the Department of Economic Development UAE, and comply with their requirements.
Benefits of Starting a FinTech in the UAE
Starting a fintech business in the UAE can prove to be very profitable for multiple reasons. The fintech industry is growing at a very rapid rate in the region due to increasing demand, as well as the comfortable business space provided by the government. The UAE has very relaxed corporate laws and registering your company, as well as getting relevant licenses, is much easier compared to other countries. In addition to that, the UAE has a very attractive corporate tax rate of just 9 percent, which is a huge plus.
Choosing the Right Software Platform
Choosing the right software platform can help you efficiently manage your business, streamline operations, manage clientele, provide customers with the best services, and comply with regulations, ultimately boosting growth.
Company’s Track Record in the Local Market. While choosing a fintech software platform provider, make sure that the company is well-reputed and has a positive track record in the local market. Check past clients’ experiences with the company before making the final decision.
Modularity. The software platform must be modular so you can conveniently maintain, repair, and modify it when needed. Changing needs of the business as well as the customer can require you to adjust your system accordingly, which is why this feature is important.
Modern Technology. Your platform must utilize the most modern tech so you can beat market competition and provide customers with the best services. In today’s cut-throat market, only the latest technologies can help your business stay ahead of the curve.
Customizability. It is important that the platform is customizable so you can tailor it to use it comfortably, as well as when needed in the future for reasons such as changing regulations, demands, and business structure.
The United Arab Emirates is one of the best places to start a fintech business due to high demand, changing trends, and low corporate tax rates. The government of UAE has made it extremely convenient for people to start businesses in their region, and due to the high demand for financial technologies, the country is ideal for a fintech start-up.
