"To be the leading financial group in providing innovative services with a strong regional presence being the gateway for international business into the region." Hassan Abdalla
In AAIB we firmly belief that success is not only reflected in numbers but in how we affect every one of our stakeholders and leave an impact where it matters, the concept of “Value Creation” to all stakeholders that we conceived as early as 2006 has continued to be a key organizing concept guiding the bank as it fared forward. This concept remained an expression of the bank’s proprietary understanding of the notion of balanced growth, whereby the bank realized as early as 2004 when embarked on an aggressive growth strategy that its mission goes beyond profit making to include creating value to all stakeholders. Since 2003, AAIB’s mission has extended beyond just profit making to embrace a value-based approach towards stakeholders. AAIB is the first bank in the MENA region to launch a Foundation for Social Development “We Owe It to Egypt” in the fields of health and education as early as 2007, following its success as an initiative in 2004; marking a pioneering move that set the trend for other financial institutions to join in track
Arab African International Bank has raised the bar for banking in the Egyptian banking industry It has set the record for fast paced dynamic growth, becoming Egypt's fastest growing bank in terms of size and profitability since 2004.
These growth rates substantiated AAIB's vision to become the leading Financial Group in Egypt, providing innovative services with a strong regional presence while establishing itself as the gateway for international business into the region. AAIB revolutionized the notion of growth beyond the single bottom line. The bank pursues an aggressive growth strategy in every possible way that has already materialized impressive financial performance and added value to all stakeholders we pledge to continue along our path of sustained
growth and development to reach the peak in banking services quality.
