Its modern software architecture and real-time features will provide the foundation for our digital business. Path Solutions has the knowledge, expertise and technology to fulfill our vision and support the implementation of our strategy, which is why we have chosen them as our strategic software partner”.

By selecting iMAL open banking platform across the bank’s entire business, AGB puts itself in a position to differentiate its customer proposition by accommodating its business in this important journey toward digitalization. iMAL will give AGB the technology to meet the soundest Sharia and regulatory requirements, and to scale its business while also delivering personalised customer experience”.
