Dubai, UAE; Naxxar, Malta—23 April 2024—Seed Group, a company of the Private Office of His Highness Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum, recently partnered with Binderr, a business and productivity software provider based in Malta. This strategic alliance is set to enhance compliance for businesses in Dubai and across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions.

Binderr’s software is designed as a client onboarding platform for professional firms and financial institutions. Developed with three key stakeholders in mind — regulators, businesses, and clients — the platform addresses the bottleneck of client onboarding. It delivers a bespoke client experience while optimising scarce resources for businesses.

“We are pleased to welcome Binderr as our newest partner. Their advanced operating system and streamlined approach to anti-money laundering and know-your-customer (AML and KYC) procedures will produce greater things for small and established businesses in Dubai,” said Mr. Hisham Al Gurg, the CEO of Seed Group. He went on to say, “This collaboration exemplifies our shared drive to maximise technology to drive innovation, enhance efficiency, and create sustainable value for businesses in the locale.”

Seed Group is a conglomerate of a royal family in Dubai, with a rich legacy of fostering strategic alliances in the UAE and the wider MENA region. Collaborating with the company, therefore, provides Binderr with an opportunity to gain a unique insight into the business culture of the emirate. It also gives Binderr access to excellent regional connections and expertise that can help them grow and expand their business in the area.

Jacob Appel, CEO and Founder of Binderr, emphasised the importance of its expansion in the UAE. “Our technology is not just a tool; it is a statement that the UAE is open for business and playing at the forefront of compliance innovation. Remaining off the grey list is vital, and the fact that the UAE is welcoming software such as Binderr is a testament to their dedication to upholding the highest standards in the fight against financial crime.” Appel also remarked, “We are honoured to partner with the royal family to bring innovative tech to the banks and professional firms and support them in their growth.”

Notably, the UAE was recently removed from the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) grey list in February 2024. To maintain this status and further mitigate the risks associated with money laundering, embracing business solutions like Binderr is imperative.

Binderr’s digital features enable clients to utilise customised questionnaires and risk assessments, real-time data integration, facial recognition technology and identity verification, as well as advanced screening for PEPs and Sanctions. These components streamline operations and ensure regulatory compliance for the targeted sectors. Moreover, the platform efficiently maps out corporate structures to swiftly identify Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBOs).
