Banque Saudi Fransi partners with Fitch Learning to launch the Banker Associate Program in Saudi Arabia designed to develop future leaders of the bank
Fitch Learning is pleased to announce the launch of its flagship International Banker Associate Program (BAP) for Banque Saudi Fransi (BSF). This dynamic 12-month learning initiative is designed to enable the firm’s banking associates to accelerate their careers by gaining the right mix of business knowledge, entrepreneurial insight and financial skills to be recognized as future leaders in the company.
Over the past few years, BSF has demonstrated a sustainable pattern of growth that has established its current financial strength and leadership in the Saudi market, and positioned the Bank as a modern and dynamic institution fully geared to meet the opportunities of the future. The program further demonstrates its commitment to supporting ongoing Saudi Government economic reform programs and its developmental efforts to strengthen the economy by enhancing opportunities in the communities in which it operates.
Commenting on the BAP program, Andreas Karaiskos, CEO of Fitch Learning, said:
“This strategic initiative has been designed to deliver an immersive and challenging learning and development solution. We will provide a range of Fitch Group resources including technical, professional and leadership skills required for working in today’s fast-moving international banking arena. The BAP combines proven learning methods, hands-on tools and mentoring opportunities that can be immediately deployed in complex business scenarios in KSA and across the region.”
Reem Alkhamis, Head of Learning and Talent Management of BSF, observed:
“I am pleased to work with Fitch Learning to establish this flagship program for BSF. Only the most suitable candidates who aspire to grow their careers in the banking industry in the KSA in line with BSF’s mission and values have been selected for this program, so I am sure that they will all play a very active role in contributing to BSF’s leadership and talent pool in the future.”
