Wall Street Exchange in deal with FGB
Dubai, August 8, 2007
Wall Street Exchange Centre, a subsidiary of Emirates Post, has entered into an agreement with First Gulf Bank (FGB).
The agreement allows FGB’s customers to pay credit card bills at any of the 18 branches of Wall Street Exchange across the UAE.
The agreement was signed by Wall Street Exchange managing director Abdullah Bin Ghaleb and FGB’s retail section head Amit Vanshu.
Details of the bills paid at the Wall Street Exchange branches will automatically be entered in the FGB systems, while the customer will get a printed receipt of the transaction.
“This deal with First Gulf Bank takes us a step closer to our goal of making our branches a place for multiple financial services, in partnership with private and public corporations,” said Bin Ghaleb.
“We already have a similar agreement with Standard Chartered Bank. Wall Street Exchange is on track to achieve its goal of expanding its network regionally and internationally by consolidating our presence in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. We aspire to be a leading global financial services company delivering services of the highest standards to our customers,” he said.
“As a customer-focused bank, First Gulf Bank is committed to widening the options available to our customers. The Wall Street Exchange branches will complement our network of branches and ATMs to enable our customers to pay their credit card bills with ease and speed anywhere in the UAE,” said Amit Vanshu.
Wall Street Exchange is one of UAE’s biggest and oldest foreign exchange and money transfer companies, operating since 1982.
It has a global presence with 6 branches in the United Kingdom, eight in Hong Kong and 18 in the UAE. Wall Street has correspondent relationships with 80 banks across the globe. – TradeArabia News Service
