In line with its commitment to customer convenience, Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) announced today the opening of its newest branch, located in The Dubai Mall, bringing the bank’s UAE-wide network to a total of 70 branches.

As we move forward with our extremely successful strategy, we will further expand our branch network and range of self service banking solutions,” he said. “This customer-focused strategy continues to reflect in the sustained growth that DIB has experienced over the past few years.”

Nasser Rafi, Chief Executive Officer, Emaar Malls Group, said, “We are committed to bringing the entire spectrum of lifestyle experiences and services to The Dubai Mall. In line with our focus on attracting leading brands, we are therefore delighted to partner with Dubai Islamic Bank, and to welcome them to The Dubai Mall.”

“We are very pleased to announce the opening of our new branch at The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination,” said Rashid Mahboob, Head of Mass Market, Dubai Islamic Bank.

“Based on its popularity with UAE residents and with over 47 million visitors last year alone,” Mahboob said. “The Dubai Mall was a natural choice for Dubai Islamic Bank as we continue to expand our branch network at leading destinations in the emirate and across the UAE.”
