The Bank was formed in 2006 by a number of prestigious financial, industrial and commercial partners mainly from the GCC region. The core premise for its creation was an ambition to create a distinguished, progressive, global Shari’a compliant investment bank with its principles firmly rooted in the region.

Today, as the Bank is now established and continues a plan of growth and improvement, its long-term vision is to become not only one of the region’s most prestigious investment banks, but also to attain greater recognition and respect within international financial markets.
