GIB Celebrates its 40th Anniversary and launches its new corporate identity in Bahrain

2 December 2016: Gulf International Bank (GIB) last week held a reception on the occasion of its 40th year anniversary and its recently launched new corporate identity. The event was attended by government representatives and business partners at the Four Seasons Hotel, Bahrain Bay.

Mr. Abdulaziz Al-Helaissi, GIB CEO, said: “Through 40 years of growth and achievements, GIB has always embraced progress and innovation. This is now personified in a refreshed brand, designed to complement our strategic ambitions in a challenging financial environment.”

GIB’s inception was founded on merchant banking activities but evolved into a full service bank through its diversification strategy. Now, the bank offers its clients a wider range of bespoke products such as fee-based financial solutions and progressive Global Transaction Banking services. The bank reached its transformative peak when it launched its digital banking proposition, meem by GIB in 2014, modernizing the culture of banking in the region.

“With the much enhanced identity and vision, GIB is now even better positioned to be the partner for both local and international clients with regional GCC interest and focus”, said Mr. Al-Helaissi.
