Sarwa, a popular UAE investing platform and app, has launched a new feature known as Sarwa Save. The latest offering is a high-yield cash saving account with several exciting features, the foremost of which is a very respectable 3% interest rate. The idea behind the account is that it will serve as a parking place for cash earned while investing and comes with zero transfer costs for AED local accounts, no account minimums, no management fees, plus fast online setup through the app.

“While we are strong believers in long-term passive investing, we are also conscious of how market conditions might affect short/medium-term goals. A short-term investing option is an important part of a good financial plan. Our clients were asking for a product to park their cash while earning returns, with the same easy access and simple experience as their Sarwa Invest, Sarwa Trade, and Sarwa Crypto accounts. As always, we listened to our community and decided to launch our fourth pillar,” says Mark Chahwan, Co-founder and CEO of Sarwa.

Sarwa’s 100,000 active users will now find it easier than ever to centralize the entire investment process in a single app, whether they’re taking a hands-off, long-term approach or prefer the convenience of self-directed trading using a single service. It’s also worth noting that Sarwa offers Save Halal, a low-risk money market funds portfolio, which also projects a return of 3%.

Overview of Sarwa Save features:

  • 3% interest rate.
  • Easy online setup and access to real human support.
  • Zero withdrawal fees. No lock-in period.
  • No account minimums.
  • No management fees.
  • No transfer costs for AED local accounts.
  • Deep integration with Sarwa Invest accounts.
  • Partition and label funds to enhance saving.

Sarwa Save looks like a promising financial product, especially as the average yield on a UAE savings account currently stands at around 0.8%.

Interested in setting up an account? Sarwa Save is available to new and existing users through the Sarwa website and mobile app.

Disclaimer: Sarwa Save is a product offered through Sarwa Digital Wealth (Capital) Limited that is regulated by the FSRA in the ADGM. This offering is not regulated by the DFSA. Sarwa is not a bank. We can unlock high-yield accounts through our banking partners.

Binance Receives Virtual Assets License To Operate In Dubai

As its user base nears 200 million, CEO Richard Teng believes crypto adoption will soar over the next half of the decade.



binance receives virtual assets license to operate in dubai

Global crypto exchange Binance has been granted a full operational license in Dubai, in a move that’s expected to accelerate digital asset adoption and strengthen the UAE’s regulatory landscape.

The virtual asset service provider license (VASP) was granted by the Dubai Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) and will allow Binance to extend its current range of services to retail investors, the company announced yesterday.

The move by Dubai authorities will be critical to Binance’s strategy of growing its user base globally. The crypto exchange expects to pass the 200 million user mark “quite shortly”, according to Richard Teng, the company’s CEO.

Once that milestone is achieved, Binance will have around twice as many users as rival platform Coinbase. Meanwhile,, another popular exchange with 80 million users, received a Dubai VASP license last week.

“We’re seeing much greater institutional adoption and institutional money coming into this space [along with] much greater regulatory clarity and a lot more jurisdictions approving [digital asset] products that bring in new investor classes,” Binance’s Richard Tang explained, adding: “As of now, we stand at about 5% crypto adoption globally, but that will become much faster moving forward”.

Dubai and the UAE are extremely supportive of technologies like digital assets, and have already launched initiatives to boost adoption. The UAE has ambitious plans to become a world leader in the crypto economy of the future, with Dubai in particular being noteworthy for passing a new law to regulate virtual assets to support investors and exchanges.

“Global crypto regulation is currently showing diverging signs. Some developed countries have long suffered from crypto-related frauds and illegal exchanges. On the other hand, emerging nations like the UAE and Singapore have enacted crypto laws at faced pace,” said Vijay Valecha, chief investment officer of Dubai-based Century Financial.

As the UAE gears up to become one of the fastest-growing crypto capitals worldwide, investors and talent are flocking to places like Dubai. During 2023, the Emirates as a whole realized $204 million in capital gains from cryptocurrency investments, according to blockchain data analysts Chainalysis.
