Driven by its innovative culture, Mashreq was also one of the early adopters of metal cards in the UAE. Leveraging IDEMIA’s smart metal technology, Mashreq introduced personalized metal cards as a premium payment instrument, replacing the Solitaire card, for its high-end customer segment in 2016.

Powered by IDEMIA’s expertise in design and personalization services, the Mashreq metal bank card serves as a prestigious and unique status symbol for its card holders. This drive to ensure customer excellence has seen Mashreq Bank issue over 15,000 metal cards to its premium customers since its introduction. This is the highest number of metal cards issued by a single bank in the UAE.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with IDEMIA for our metal card products,” said Pankaj Kundra, Head of Payments at Mashreq Bank. “Throughout our partnership, IDEMIA has supported Mashreq with proven and innovative technology so that we are able to deliver a signature payment experience to our high-end segment to complement the lifestyle of our elite consumer base.”
