Today, Fitch Learning (@FitchLearning) and Banque Saudi Fransi (@Banque_Fransi) announced the launch of their 2021 International Banker Associate Program (BAP) in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) after the success of the first BAP 2019-2020. The Program will run from August 2021 until January 2022.

BSF recently reported strong second-quarter profit growth amid economic recovery in KSA, and remains committed to positioning the Bank as a modern and dynamic institution that is fully geared to meet the opportunities of the future. This year’s program has been specifically designed to enable 24 of the firm’s brightest banking associates to accelerate their careers in BSF by gaining the right mix of business knowledge, entrepreneurial insight and financial skills to be recognized as future leaders in the company. 

Andreas Karaiskos, CEO of Fitch Learning, said

“Following the success of our last BAP, I am pleased to welcome the second cohort of financial professionals taking part in our Program together with BSF. We’ve worked collaboratively with BSF to design a dynamic, globally-relevant initiative for these future leaders that will provide them with the technical, professional and leadership skills they really need to succeed in today’s fast-moving international banking arena, and I’m sure they’ll really benefit from taking part in this truly immersive experience.”

Reema Siyam, Head of Learning & Talent Management at Banque Saudi Fransi, said

“The BSF Banker Associate Program is one of our flagship development experiences. Participants are selected not only for academic and professional excellence, but also for their growth and leadership potential. We aim to give them the knowledge and the tools to excel, challenging them to not only build technical expertise but to grow personally and professionally. We look forward to engaging with this cohort in their learning and to seeing what we can accomplish together.”
