Held in a coffee shop, the occasion also raised awareness about how young individuals can get the most out of banking. The occasion is element of a series of youth-centred initiatives that demonstrate NBO’s extended-standing commitment to this segment, which represents much more than 50 per cent of Oman’s population.

“These kind of fun, informal events help in establishing a culture of financial awareness and responsibility amongst the young generation, and highlight all the ways we as a bank work to empower young people” mentioned Ismail al Balushi, acting head of Segments at NBO.

“NBO invests heavily in the youth as we believe in their power to shape the future. Our role does not stop at offering innovative banking solutions that fit their unique financial and lifestyle needs, but extends through our values as a community-focused organisation.” In addition to coaching and internship programmes, the bank runs a selection of initiatives that engage young individuals, such as offering them possibilities to take on genuine-life paid tasks such as photography and designing.

Other endeavours contain the ‘Innovation in SME’ award, which rewards entrepreneurship amongst the youth, and the NBO Hackathon, which fosters large technological tips from young developers and designers with the prospective for future implementation.
