The development of the UAE is undoubtedly a success story. It was not just prudent policies that were essential for the country’s extraordinary economic growth but also a stable financial system. Not only state banks, but also more than 150 private banks, including numerous key international players handle the financial needs of the residents of the Emirates. To select their banking partner therefore, a prospective client needs to know where the bank's strategic focus lies, and how he or she can benefit from it.
