Finance Bank S.A.L., which is 98 percent - owned by Intra Investment S.A.L., increased its capital for the third time in three years, from $12.45 million to $15.5 million following an extraordinary general assembly.
The bank’s Chairman - General Manager Hassan Farran viewed the capital increase partly as a commitment by Finance Bank to development projects like the satellite communications venture Skybridge.
