17 financial initiatives for individuals and SMEs

André Sayegh, Group Chief Executive Officer, First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB), said:“The UAE has shown exceptional leadership in its decisive actions to support the community and businesses during this time, sharing its collective strength and compassion in the way it is responding to the challenges affecting our world.

FAB is honoured to work in tandem with other banks to deliver support and provide added certainty to individuals and businesses across the emirates. We recognise that all customers have different needs during this difficult time and this comprehensive package truly supports economic stability and builds on earlier initiatives by FAB. In coordination with the emirates authorities, FAB will continue to provide meaningful support to individuals and SMEs over the coming months. We are all affected by these unprecedented circumstances, and we must all work together to grow stronger.”
