Business Case

Sharia-Compliant in Four Months

The Nouvelle Banque de Mauritanie (‘The New Bank of Mauritania’ or NBM) chose Sopra Banking Software to coordinate its creation and the development of its activities. The implementation project began in December 2013 with the goal of getting live within a record timeframe, and effectively did so four months later, with the bank opening on June 12, 2014

In a Nutshell

  • Name: Nouvelle Banque de Mauritanie
  • Location: Mauritania
  • Need: Modern, Sharia-compliant core banking solution 


NBM was the first bank to use Sopra Banking Amplitude for Islamic Banking. This solution allows banks to cover the entirety of Islamic banking activities. It comprises three segments: Islamic deposits, Islamic investments and profit distribution. It also allows users to manage Islamic products at the heart of a complete, flexible and modular core banking system, so that banks can manage all of their activities together (e.g. customer engagement, compliance, CRM, accounting, digital banking, treasury or risk) while conforming to Sharia law.
