Banks in the Middle East know how to cope with a crisis: Lebanese banks’ profit as the country teeters on civil war; Iranian institutions deftly avoid US financial sanctions.

The ability of National Bank of Kuwait to operate during the Gulf war of 1990-91 is another case in point. And in 2008, across the NBK group, as some of the biggest Middle Eastern financial institutions teetered on bankruptcy, almost $1 billion in profit was made.

No bank in the region, though, has more experience of living through crises than Arab Bank.
