[UAE, November 26, 2014] - Al Ansari Exchange, a UAE-based foreign exchange and worldwide money transfer company, was recently presented with the Silver Category award of the 13th Cycle of the Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Award (SKEA) during its closing ceremonies held last November 25, 2014 at the Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi. The SKEA award, which was instituted by the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce, was held under the patronage of H.H.

Sheikh Hamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chief of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court, along with a number of ministers, senior government officials and high-profile individuals in the UAE.
The award was given in recognition of Al Ansari Exchange’s outstanding performance over the past few years. Judges for this year’s cycle of the awards have cited the company for having registered the highest evaluation scores during the three-month long arbitration and assessment process, which included a series of introductory seminars, workshops and field visits to evaluate the nominated businesses and examine their compliance to set international standards and best practices. The winning serves as a key addition to Al Ansari Exchange’s record of awards and successful achievements—further affirming the company’s continuing and robust commitment to reach the highest levels of quality, efficiency and excellence in serving customers.
