Established in 1957 as Bahrain’s first locally owned bank, the National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) has grown steadily to become the country’s leading provider of retail and commercial banking services.

With a major share of the total domestic commercial banking market and the largest network of 25 branches and 59 ATMs, the NBB plays a key role in the local economy.

At the same time, the NBB continues to diversify and develop capabilities to capture business opportunities in the Gulf region and international markets. Our branches in Abu Dhabi and Riyadh lead the way in this initiative.

Publicly listed on the Bahrain Bourse, the NBB is owned 44.94% by private and institutional shareholders, mainly Bahrainis; 44.18% by Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (which is 100% owned by the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain); and 10.88% by the Social Insurance Organization. Market driven and customer led, the NBB harnesses the latest technology for people skills, enabling its 575 employees to deliver highly professional services for retail and corporate customers.
