Don't know the history but in isolation his comment is a little funny. The title of this thread is wrong, I'm sure it is an honest mistake by the poster.

...  Digital transformation would be another focus.

“The youth are tech-savvy and this puts a requirement on what they need from banks, which is changing significantly,” said Soren Nikolajsen, managing director of Alawwal. “We are fully aligned with this . . . with the scale to support.”

HSBC will be the largest shareholder with 29.2 per cent and three of 11 board seats at the merged bank. The Olayan Saudi Investment Company will hold 18.2 per cent.

The consortium that controlled Alawwal Bank — including Royal Bank of Scotland, Banco Santander and the Dutch government — will own 11 per cent.

The combination is the first bank merger for two decades and comes as other Gulf banks agree tie-ups to create economies of scale.
