Signing of the agreement

National Bonds, the UAE’s leading Shari’a-compliant savings and investment company owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, has partnered with Lulu Exchange – a global cross-border payments company, to provide customers and employees the opportunity to embark on and accelerate their savings journey.

The partnership will make it easier and convenient for UAE nationals and expats to choose from National Bonds’ diversified saving solutions, as well as top up their National Bonds account instantly,  through any of the 91 Lulu Exchange branches spread across the UAE.

Speaking of the partnership, National Bonds Group CEO, Mohammed Qasim Al Ali, said: “At National Bonds, while we’re working on our mission to empower nationals and residents of the UAE to take charge of their financial future, we’re also striving to deliver intelligent and convenient services to help them have easy access so that they can make swift and confident decisions on time. Our partnership with a financial giant like Lulu Exchange is another step we have taken towards this mission. Through this collaboration between a leading savings and investments company and a renowned financial institution, we want to push the boundaries of the UAE savings culture and make sure everyone can get started on their savings journey.”
