Compliancy at the forefront of progress

A fast growing fintech firm

Compliancy at the forefront of progress case study image


This client is one of MENA’s fastest growing and most promising fintech firms. They provide a digital card payment platform for consumers and businesses, offering BIN (Banking Identification Number) sponsorship.


This was the first time Halian and the client had partnered up. After another agency had failed to fill a very specific brief after scouring the Middle East and Europe, they turned to us and our substantial compliance expertise.


The client was searching for a Chief Compliance Officer – an absolutely crucial role to ensure accordance with the ADGM regulations as well as local and international regulations around BIN sponsorship.


Within two days we presented two people who were both requested for an interview. But it was from our Fintech lead’s own network that the ideal candidate was found and approached.

Searching specifically within the BIN sponsorship market, we headhunted a person already working in the region – someone, importantly, we had a past relationship with. Within a day of speaking to the candidate and submitting her profile, we had an offer on the table.


The speed and success of this initial Halian experience impressed the client greatly – they witnessed first-hand the depth of our expertise and network.

As a result, the client has already offered us exclusivity on any future senior recruitment requirements.
