Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Noor Islamic Bank said: “Our robust performance in the first half of the year is a direct result of the strategic initiatives and business model realignment that we have been undertaking within the bank over the past 18 months. Our efforts to focus our expertise on niche business opportunities are reflected in our earnings momentum. “We will maintain a prudent approach in our growth strategy. The bank’s capital adequacy ratio remains robust at 18.36 per cent. We remain confident and positive about our future and are well positioned to continue to provide consistent performance, both financially and operationally, and to maximise opportunities as the economic situation improves.”

NIB’s improved results are underpinned by increased operating revenues and earnings stemming from the strategic consolidation drive adopted in 2010.

Hussain AlQemzi, Chief Executive Officer, Noor Islamic Bank and Group CEO Noor Investment Group said: “We have been able to realize strong operating results as a consequence of remaining focussed on executing against our stated strategy of playing to our strengths and leveraging on our areas of expertise, across the UAE and regionally. The past six months of this year have shown steady growth in our net revenues of Dh386 million, whilst simultaneously generating an improvement of seven per cent in our expense base against the same period last year.
