In a year which rocked industry giants and shook small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to their core, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank-Egypt (ADIB-Egypt) won 10 highly prestigious financial awards for its excellence in serving personal and corporate clients.
Many of the most influential finance and banking publications recognised ADIB-Egypt’s new initiatives and ongoing quality throughout the year, reaffirming its position as one of the most successful, innovative and respected banks in the region.
Beating 2019’s total of seven awards, this year the bank was named: Best in Social Media Marketing and Services; Best Bill Payment and Presentment; and Egypt’s Best Islamic Financial Institution.
The awards were awarded by the International Finance Magazine, which also recognised the bank as the Best Islamic Bank in Egypt and Best Digital Bank in Egypt.
The Global Economics Awards presented ADIB-Egypt with awards for Best Mobile Banking Services – Egypt and Best Innovative Cards – Egypt. The bank also beat some off some strong market competition to win the MEA-Finance Awards distinction of Best Retail Bank in Egypt.
The World Finance News Awards named ADIB-Egypt as Best Islamic Bank, a win which was reinforced by The Banker publication, which presented the bank with the award for Egypt’s Islamic Bank of the Year.
The awards over the past 12 months reflect ADIB-Egypt’s commitment to not only refining the quality of its current services. It also reflects the bank’s implementing its innovative approach to digital banking, an essential element during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
With accolades including Best Digital Banking, Best Mobile Banking Services, and Best in Social Media Marketing and Services, ADIB-Egypt has proven itself to be leaders in a field which has increasingly become the norm.
“We believe that being proactive rather than reactive is a far more effective approach,” said Mohamed Aly, ADIB-Egypt Managing Director and CEO, “We are proud that we have provided business customers with services that make their banking more accessible and are delighted that we have received awards that reflect that.”
He added that, throughout the bank’s history, it has always endeavoured to provide exceptional traditional services and in times of uncertainty and confusion.
“We will continue to support our consumers with advanced banking Sharia compliant solutions,” Aly said, “This recognition of our all-round performance over the year from some of the world’s most eminent financial publications is a great testament to the efforts and achievements of every one of our teams.”
Award-winning ADIB-Egypt was the result of an acquisition of the National Bank for Development (NBD) by a UAE consortium between Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank and Emirates International Investment Company (EIIC) in 2007. At present, the bank is deemed one of the most prominent financial institutions that have ever worked in Islamic banking in Egypt.
ADIB-Egypt employs a well-trained team of over 2,000 employees working closely to provide more services and banking products to fulfill customer needs through a nationwide network of 70 branches, 105 ATMs. To achieve integration in banking services, the bank established “ADIB Capital”, the investment arm of the bank, and ADILease for financial leasing. The bank continues to work to promote its standing as one of the largest Islamic banks and financial services institutions.
