Commenting on the campaign, Mr Khaled Al Kayed, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Nizwa said, “As a customer-centric bank, we always endeavour to stay abreast of our client’s needs. What makes this finance unique is that is based on Murabaha contract where the profit rate is fixed throughout the financing tuner. With the commencement of Ramadan, numerous automobile companies announce lucrative deals and Bank Nizwa wants to ensure its customers have the power to leverage these offers. The holy month of Ramadan also draws emphasis on the values of Shari’ah, and by providing meaningful Shari’ah-compliant solutions that add value to the lives of people, Bank Nizwa has been able to further promote the benefits of Islamic finance. One of the reasons that the Ramadan Auto Finance Campaign has gained increasing popularity is because it gives clients the assurance of adhering to the rules of Shari’ah. Moreover, the auto finance campaign has also been appropriately timed and customised to accurately address other critical parameters that customers prioritise, primarily flexibility, convenience and long-term benefits.”

The campaign also comes with a host of other privileges like a credit card with zero fees for the first year. To further highlight the benefits of Shari’ah-compliant financing, Bank Nizwa’s campaign extends its advantages to parallel domains, offering customers competitive rates for Takaful insurance. With a keen focus on making financing hassle-free, quick, and accessible, the bank has also not made it mandatory for customers to transfer their salaries to Bank Nizwa to avail the benefits of the campaign. Additionally, Bank Nizwa provides ‘Instant Car Finance’, making it the first in the country to offer on-the-spot approval to finance cars. It will allow bank customers to complete their car financing procedures while visiting the showrooms of participating car dealers.
