Suggestions for best bank in Riyadh for UK expat !

Hi….wrapping up my first week in Riyadh. I have the temporary housing sorted, my iqama, an interesting job and now I need to select a local bank.

My existing bank is not represented here so a quick question to the expat community is “which is the best local bank that allows us to wire funds to UK for decent rates etc”?

My research says SBB is pretty decent as is SAMBA.Thoughts?

Thanks ahead of time for the feedback and then I will start bugging you guys for bachelor housing in a compound.

Cheers

Andrew

PS - close to the Dr Sulaiman Al Habib Hospital and in Sky Towers in Olaya if anyone has ideas on long term accommodation….
