Banker ME names NBK "Best Premium" and "Best Ladies" Banking Service in the Middle East for 2010
• Dubai, UAE:
National Bank of Kuwait (NBK), the leading bank in Kuwait and the highest rated in the Middle East, has been awarded today the “Best Premium Banking Service and Best Ladies Banking Service in the Middle East for 2010” by the renowned regional financial magazine, “Banker Middle East”. Abdullah Al Najran Al Tuwaijri, NBK’s Deputy Group General Manager, Consumer Banking Group and Tareq Al Mudhaf, NBK Dubai Branch Manager, have proudly received the awards on behalf of NBK.
Al Najran said that winning the award on the domestic and regional level underscores NBK’s strong leadership position among Arab banks and demonstrates its remarkably strong hold in banking and finance as well as its strong financial competitive capabilities.
"NBK has yet to reveal new developments in strategy which will further reinforce its prominent position in the local and regional markets", Al Tuwaijri added. NBK is one of the largest and most profitable banks in the Middle East and has become a formidable challenger to some of the international financial giants through a sustained regional expansion program and also by being able to take full advantage of the improved economic environment, diversifying its revenue sources and continually upgrading its comprehensive range of products in response to the needs of its customers. NBK has indeed become “the bank of choice” for a large number of individuals and businesses domestically, regionally and globally.
Al Thahabi, for example, is a premium package from NBK offering customers personalized and "best in class" products and services, managed by a personal banking officer. Thahabi customers also enjoy many banking-related discounts, fee waivers and value-added lifestyle benefits.
