Welcome to the eighth issue of Wealth & Finance International Magazine, which is dedicated to providing fund managers, institutional and private investors from around the globe with the very latest industry news in the traditional and alternative investment landscapes.

Gracing the cover of this month’s issue is Azizi Bank. As the largest commercial bank in Afghanistan, they have made a substantial push over the last year to incorporate more mobile banking options for their clients. As a result of these efforts, and their consistent dedication to being at the forefront of the country’s banking industry, Wealth & Finance International named Azizi Bank Afghanistan’s “Bank of the Year for 2018”. We spoke to Azizi’s President and CEO, Dr. Mohammad Salem Omaid, to find out how he has forged their peerless reputation in the finance sector.

Also in this issue, we spoke to Javed Khattak who, in his role as CFO of Humaniq, is helping to bring about the next generation of financial services. As an expert in Blockchain technologies he hopes to bring Fintech to areas of the globe that have no access to regular banking services. We endeavoured to find out more.

In a nice change of pace, Wealth & Finance spoke to Bradley Whitchurch, the CEO of Seal Shield, to find out how he drives innovation in the infection prevention industry. Utilising strategic partnerships and technology acquisitions, Seal Shield has become synonymous with excellence in the healthcare sector.

Finally, on the back of their success in the Finest in Finance Awards, we took a close look at D&D Leasing UK, a multinational leasing and financing provider. The firm’s Founder, Rev. Dr. K. Bill Dost, revealed some of the secrets behind their success.

At Wealth & Finance Magazine, we sincerely hope that you enjoy reading this month’s issue and look forward to hearing from you.
