BEST BANK: National Bank of Kuwait
BEST EQUITY HOUSE: Global Investment House

Competition has intensified in Kuwait in the past couple of years. The standard of products and services is higher than ever before and a number of banks, headed by Commercial Bank of Kuwait, are now offering a real challenge to National Bank of Kuwait’s dominant position.

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.

It has done so by maintaining the mix of conservativism and aggression that is necessary to succeed in a politically and economically volatile market.

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.
