Wednesday, May 26, 2021
Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB) announced its strategic partnership with the Bahrain Institute of Banking & Finance (BIBF), as it joins the corporate sponsorship project within the BIBF new iconic building at Bahrain Bay.
The agreement to this effect will see the Assessment Halls named after BisB, at the BIBF’s new state-of-the-art building, with an expected inauguration later this year to serve the training needs of the financial sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain and beyond. This partnership will increase brand awareness and reinforce the positioning of BisB as one of the pioneer Islamic banking institutions in the Kingdom.
On this occasion, Mr. Hassan Jarrar, CEO of Bahrain Islamic Bank, stated, “We are pleased to contribute to the support of this new educational landmark, given the commitment to serve the financial services sector through the training and development of all banking sector cadres in the Kingdom of Bahrain.” He also added, “This sponsorship is in line with our social responsibility initiatives, especially towards the support of educational institutions in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
On his part, the BIBF Director, Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh stated, “We are extremely honoured to have the backing of Bahrain Islamic Bank – the first Islamic bank in Bahrain – to launch our new iconic building in Bahrain Bay, which marks an important milestone in the development of Bahrain’s financial services sector, the educational sector and the national economy as a whole.” He also added, “This large-scale project comes in line with the BIBF’s expansion plan to further accommodate the growing demand and improve the learning experience, contributing to Bahrain’s skyline as an iconic symbol of modern architecture and distinguished educational edifice.”
The construction on the BIBF’s new landmark commenced earlier last year with a total structural area of 25,000 square meters that stands as a luxury waterfront development; providing the latest technologies, cutting-edge facilities and digital innovation to ensure the highest standards of efficiency, and a unique learning experience.
