Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) was established in 1967 with its Head Quarters in Kuwait which brought together diverse departments which are extraordinary in their individual capabilities as well as in the ways they enhance and complement each other. We have a retail network of 28 branches and two overseas branches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, UAE. The full-service branches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi service both Kuwaiti and UAE-based clients, clearly demonstrating ABK’s commitment to the commercial business between Kuwaiti and Gulf-based Arab and international importers and exporters.
ABK has also made key strategic alliances with world-class financial partners. Co-branding with Emirates Airline on ABK credit cards has ensured they have become a popular method of payment, allowing cardholders to earn and redeem Skywards Miles. ABK also offers top-performing mutual funds to its clients. The Al Ahli Kuwaiti Fund and the Gulf Fund have continuously provided excellent returns by investing in Kuwait and GCC equity markets.
ABK is the first Kuwaiti bank in the UAE. ABK’s branches in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, focus on wholesale and commercial banking services, targeting customers based or doing business in the U.A.E. In particular ABK supports the banking needs of Kuwaiti companies in the U.A.E as well as assisting U.A.E based companies with information, support and access to the Kuwait market.
The Bank’s two-emirate platform enables it to support clients looking to business in these key business centers and its range of corporate banking products and services includes the ability, as fully-fledged UAE branches to issue letters of guarantee in support of projects to government related entities, particularly in the infrastructure and oil and gas sectors.
The Bank also offers a retail banking service to its clients, primarily supporting Kuwait clients with banking needs in the UAE but also extending to supporting client companies with salary services for their workforce.
