But it is a tribute to the professionalism of NBK’s management that it still has the energy and drive to remain ahead of its rivals and retain its position as the best bank in the country.

NBK continues to dominate the consumer banking sector, continually reassessing and launching new products – most recently it devised accounts targeted at university students and the growing number of expatriates.
The bank was one of the pioneers of private wealth management in the region and its private banking service maintains the highest standards.
