Sir Easa Saleh Al Gurg, KCVO, CBE, Deputy Chairman, said, "NBF continues to make good progress in its principal areas of focus. The bank was honoured once again with more awards and endorsements this quarter underscoring NBF’s long-standing culture of service excellence, client partnership and being the employer of choice.

Also, NBF retained the Best Corporate Bank UAE and Best Commercial Bank UAE at the Banker Middle East Industry Awards together with the MENA HR Excellence Team of the Year awards.

It is good to see our commitment to the long-term sustainability of both our business model and our customer relationships have served us well during this period.
"Effective risk management, good governance and proactive business management are essential elements for ongoing success, and we remain committed to creating exceptional value for our customers and shareholders," he concluded.
