Established in 1957 as the Kingdom’s first locally owned bank, the National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) has stood proud as the pillar of the Kingdom’s banking industry for over 60 years. The Bank is a true reflection of Bahrain’s banking legacy, going on to play an integral role in the Kingdom’s banking industry’s digital revolution, and has continued to set industry benchmarks, overtaking its competitors in the race to better meet the fast-evolving needs of its customers.

Driven by its brand promise and cumulative expertise, the Bank has constantly focused its efforts on being closer to its customers as it continues to offer products and services designed to enrich their lives. With the largest network of branches and ATMs in the Kingdom, NBB has advanced to omnichannel banking to pave the way for innovation and customer convenience, both locally and regionally, expanding into key GCC markets including Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, with Dubai as its latest market of operation.

Using Expo2020 as a platform, NBB intends to showcase its alignment with the Bahrain Economic Vision 2030, representing Bahrain as a viable business partner through its vast network of TeamBahrain vendors. The bank aims to create and develop cross-country relationship management, attracting new business and regional deals via capitalising on networking opportunities with regional entities to further drive the Kingdom’s agenda towards regional growth and development.

Today, NBB stands proud as the Kingdom’s most sustainable bank, winning ‘Middle East’s Best Bank for Corporate Responsibility’ by Euromoney in 2021, alongside the ‘Outstanding Leadership in Sustaining Communities’ Award by the Sustainable Finance Awards in 2021. NBB is currently ranked first on the Kingdom’s Banking Sector for Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) by ESG Invest, and is, additionally, the only constituent representing the Kingdom of Bahrain on the Refinitiv AFE Low Carbon Select Index.

Other recognitions include NBB being named one of the Top 100 Companies in the Middle East, Top 50 Banks in the Middle East, and Top 100 International CEOs Heading Local Companies by the Forbes Awards in 2021, and receiving ‘Middle East’s Best Bank Transformation’ by the Euromoney Awards in 2020, as well as 'Bahrain's Best Bank' by the prestigious organisation for a second consecutive year.
