Emirates NBD, a leading financial institution in the region, has joined the rapidly growing community of members on CCRManager, a fintech platform supporting the origination and distribution of trade assets.

This announcement is aligned to Emirates NBD’s digital strategy as the bank continues to lead innovation in digital banking in the region, and actively participates in the fintech ecosystem, said a statement.

Launched in 2017, CCRManager is a digital trade finance platform that connects various banks and financial institutions to originate and distribute trade assets.

Counting almost 40 global financial institutions members across 17 countries, the web-based platform was developed collaboratively with leading trade finance institutions globally and will enable banks in the Middle East to manage their capital, credit, and liquidity needs more effectively.

“This will strengthen our competitive edge and enhance the bank’s origination and distribution capabilities,” he said.

“Partnering with global fintech enterprises such as CCRManager enables us to provide a unique proposition to customers to support their trade flows across various geographies and get easier access to liquidity. I look forward to doing more with the community on the platform,” he added.

Emirates NBD currently has presence across key international trade corridors from the Middle East and North Africa (UAE, Egypt and Saudi Arabia) across to Asia (Singapore, China, Indonesia and India) and the UK (London).  

Tan Kah Chye, executive chairman and founder of CCRManager, said: “We are delighted by the confidence that Emirates NBD has placed in our platform.”

“The bank has been recognised globally for its leadership in fostering innovation. This is also in our DNA and we look forward to working closely with Emirates NBD and other banks in the region to rapidly develop and launch new capabilities that will deliver true value,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
