4 December 2017

Red Herring announced last week that it has named Path Solutions, the international specialist provider of Sharia-based financial software and services, to its Top 100 Global Winners list. This honor follows Path Solutions’ selection as a Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia Award Winner in 2017.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global Winners list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies across their respective industries. Red Herring was among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work. Path Solutions’ inclusion in the Top 100 Global Winners of Red Herring secured its place as the first Arab IT company to appear on this prestigious list.

“The Islamic banking world has gone a long way in the past ten years, embracing technologies which add security, compliance and other features to its offering”, said Alex Vieux, Publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The leading institution in that space, Path Solutions has managed to recruit high level talents from the best tech companies to serve the cause of one billion people customer base. The results are so compelling that Red Herring included Path Solutions within the Red Herring Top 100 Global Winners and granted it the award. They will make the world a better place”.

This is delivered in a fully open but integrated, reliable and cost-effective environment. Path Solutions’ total commitment to open standards enables its clients to benefit from the latest technology advances ensuring business agility, continuity, data integrity and availability, and low downtime delivering a significant and immediate ROI.

“Let me express how honored and appreciative we are at Path Solutions to be selected by Red Herring for this distinction”, commented Mohammed Kateeb, the company’s Group Chairman & CEO. “We could not have reached this monumental milestone without the support of all of our team members, and our incredible client partners. Thank you for being a part of our success, we couldn’t ask for a better community to work with”.

Red Herring’s independent panel of experts evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as innovation capabilities, corporate strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of their track record and positioning relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of advocacy for the most promising business models from around the world. The trophies were presented to global winners during a ceremony held in Pasadena, California, USA.
