DIB stands out at Banker ME Industry Awards


Bank recognized for its outstanding leadership and growing market share

Dr. Adnan Chilwan, Group CEO also recognized for his contribution to Global Islamic Finance

Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB), the largest Islamic bank in the UAE, has once again dominated one of the industry’s leading awards ceremonies, collecting five honours at the Banker Middle East Industry Awards 2018. For the third consecutive year, DIB was awarded the prestigious Best Islamic Bank, Best Islamic Retail Bank, Best Islamic Corporate Bank and Best Sukuk Arranger awards. The highlight of the evening was Dr. Adnan Chilwan, Group CEO at DIB, being recognized with the coveted CEO Award for Excellence in Global Islamic Finance & Banking.

The Banker Middle East Industry Awards are widely acknowledged as one the most respected in the region as winners are chosen by financial services professionals, readers of Banker Middle East and the CPI Financial website registered user base. While the assessment of the institutions is based on their brand position, value, financial performance and growth of market share in the region, nominations for the Banker ME Industry awards are made by leading industry experts from a diverse range of disciplines, offering unparalleled expertise and making nominees worthy of recognition.

Commenting on winning the awards, Dr. Adnan Chilwan, Group CEO at DIB, said: “I consider myself extremely fortunate to be not just a part of a truly exciting industry, but also to be leading the most prolific and exciting player within it.  Islamic Finance today is a global force that is now generating strong interest from all corners of the world. Whilst at DIB our commitment to becoming a global powerhouse remains unabated, on a personal front, I wish to use the strength of the franchise to promote Islamic Finance as an economically viable and robust model, bridging the gap between the traditional and non-traditional markets globally. We thank Banker Middle East for the accolades received and remain committed to the continuous evolution of this industry into a global norm.”

The Banker ME Industry awards were presented at a ceremony held on 3 May at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in DIFC, Dubai. Reflective of DIB’s status as the leader in global Islamic finance, the Bank was also recently honored with four awards at the Banker Middle East Product Awards 201 8 . These included the Corporate Deal of the Year, Best Co-Branded Credit Card, Best Home Finance and Best Call Center awards.
