Dubai – MENA Herald: Barclays announced today the launch of its most recent smartphone application titled ‘Unlock Britain’, an engaging experience that offers users in the United Arab Emirates valuable insights into the United Kingdom’s property market, educational system and international banking.
Available for both iOS and Android operating systems, the app provides quick and easy access to up-to-date and in-depth research by Barclays and third party experts. In addition to insights from within the UK’s property market and a step-by-step guide to buying property there, ‘Unlock Britain’ features a property finder, interactive maps and various useful tools such as mortgage repayment, rental yield and purchase budget calculators.
The interactive app also enables residents in the UAE to explore the UK’s educational system, delivering key insights about educating their children in the UK and an overview of universities available in the country, while supporting them in accessing their international banking needs.
Ashok Vaswani, Chief Executive of Barclays UK, said: “People are increasingly living internationally and many people from the UAE are choosing to spend time, buy a property or educate their children in the UK. There are very strong linkages between our two countries and the UK remains a great place to live, get an education or to invest. That is why we created the ‘Unlock Britain’ app specifically to give people in the UAE a brilliant experience, and put information on how to get ahead in the UK at their fingertips.”
