Dubai: Al Reem, a specialised branch of Emirates Islamic Bank designed to cater to the banking and financial needs of women, was inaugurated in Jumeirah on Tuesday.

The bank was opened by Princess Haya Bint Al Hussain, wife of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The new branch becomes Emirates Islamic Bank's 25th branch in the UAE.

"We understand and value the role of women in today's society and have carefully tailored services and special offers to provide them with all they need to fulfil their personal dreams and ambitions," he said.
