NBB in growth

NBB is publicly listed on the Bahrain Bourse with a strong local stakeholder profile. Owned 44.94% by private and institutional shareholders, 44.18% Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, wholly-owned by the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and 10.88% by the Social Insurance Organisation. 

 

NBB is a majority stakeholder (78.81%) of Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), which was a result of a strategic development plan to expand our presence in the Islamic Banking market, further enabling us to become more relevant in Sharia-compliant businesses and geographies. 

 

Our efforts are focused on capturing business opportunities locally, regionally and internationally and our Abu Dhabi and Riyadh branches lead the way in this initiative.  

 

With the largest network of 27 branches and over 100 ATMs in Bahrain, NBB is paving the way for innovation and convenience for local and regional customers.
