National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) is always keen to promote financial culture and raise awareness among different segments of society. To that end, the Bank focused its efforts to support “Let’s Be Aware” campaign launched by the Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK). Through its platform on social media and other channels, NBK continuously raises awareness about the risks of trading cryptocurrencies and investing in virtual assets, due to potential losses.

Recently, the Bank stepped up its awareness campaign, adding new content and publishing experts’ opinions, interviews, and discussions to raise public awareness of the numerous risks associated with these high-risk assets.

This campaign supports CBK’s efforts to raise customers' awareness of the risks associated with trading virtual assets.

On this occasion, Mr. Mohammad Al-Kharafi, Head of Group Operations at National Bank of Kuwait said: “We work to ensure that the public is aware of the inherent risks of investing in virtual currencies due to the high degree of uncertainty and their unregulated nature. Therefore, we strive to promote financial culture and banking awareness, in addition to fully support CBK’s campaign to educate customers about their rights and how to protect their data, banking information and funds.”

“While we caution our customers of risky investment channels, we also offer safe and diversified investment and savings alternatives to suit everyone,” Al-Kharafi added.

Al-Kharafi stressed that NBK harnesses all its capabilities and its digital channels to support CBK’s efforts to protect customers and the economy.

It is worth mentioning that NBK is a key supporter and partner in all CBK’s initiatives and campaigns aiming to raise financial awareness and spread banking culture among all segments of society. As a leading financial institution in Kuwait and across the region, NBK frequently organizes various activities that contribute to raising awareness about all topics related to the banking sector. It also organizes various activities and training courses on combating fraud and financial crimes.

CBK launched “Let’s Be Aware” banking awareness campaign, in cooperation with Kuwaiti banks, as part of its efforts to spread financial culture and raise awareness among banks’ customers of their rights and responsibilities and the best ways to benefit from banking services. The campaign also aims to promote the saving and investment culture, as well as other related topics, by publishing a variety of awareness material and information relevant to financial culture.
