Explore Our Thematic Areas

Our Thematic Areas have been gathered directly from those who operate in the Fintech space and, as a result, face these challenges regularly.

#1 Innovative Authentication Mechanisms

In an era where digital transactions are increasingly prevalent, ensuring secure and reliable user authentication is paramount. However, traditional authentication methods, such as passwords and security questions, are becoming less effective due to their vulnerability to hacking, phishing, and other forms of cyber-attacks.

Allied Bank is looking for innovative authentication mechanisms that are not only more secure but also user-friendly and accessible. Authentication solutions should balance robust security with ease of use integrating advanced technologies like touchless biometrics and password-less authentication while catering to two-factor authentication standards and considering factors such as user privacy, technological inclusivity, and resistance to emerging cyber threats. International standards of authentication factors include: something you know, something you have, and something you are.

#2 Transform ‘myABL’ into an ‘Integrated Digital Platform’

The challenge lies in transforming a conventional banking application into a comprehensive and integrated digital platform. This involves expanding the app’s functionality beyond traditional banking services to include a wide range of daily needs and lifestyle services.

Allied Bank is looking to transform ‘myABL Digital Banking App’ into an ‘Integrated Digital Platform’ that integrates various use cases / services like e-commerce, bill payments, ticket bookings, and many more, within a single platform. Allied Bank is interested to explore services that enhance customer experience and engagement with ‘myABL Digital Banking App’.




#3 Integrating Generative AI to Enhance Banking Experience

Create an AI model that can autonomously design personalized financial products or services for customers based on their transaction history and preferences. This AI should be capable of analysing vast amounts of data to identify unique customer needs, predict future financial trends, and generate innovative banking solutions.

The solution must prioritize ethical AI practices, data security, and compliance with financial regulations, while demonstrating potential for scalability and practical implementation in the banking industry.

#4 Leveraging SBP-RAAST Payments

Develop RAAST related use-cases by utilizing Allied Bank’s RAAST P2P API to facilitate real-time payments and promote financial inclusion by reducing dependency on cash and traditional banking methods.
