As a digitally-driven organisation, NBB is committed to meeting the ever-evolving needs of its customer base. Over the past year, the bank’s offerings, investments and initiatives have solidified its position in the financial industry and contributed to its ongoing success, it said.

“NBB has committed to serving its broad stakeholder base through adopting comprehensive internal training programmes, integrating sustainability-led solutions and supporting local startups and SMEs. Since its foundation, the bank has endeavoured to give back to the community while supporting national efforts to develop Bahrain’s digital economy.”

Euromoney editor-in-chief Louise Bowman said: “The National Bank of Bahrain increased its net profits by 28 per cent from 2021 to 2022, but it is the bank’s innovation in the ESG and digital space which was particularly noteworthy. The bank’s accelerated work on its ESG roadmap, revamped mobile app and wider ESG product offering for retail customers has been extremely impressive.”
