Corporate Banking Services in Asia Pacific

Arab Bank’s presence in the Asia Pacific region dates back nearly four decades as part of its vast international network with over 600 branches spanning across five contents.

Arab Bank was one of the first Arab banking institutions to have a footprint in Asia; in line with its strategy to expand its network which is considered one of the world's largest Arab banking networks. The Bank’s presence in Asia Pacific extends to cover Singapore, Shanghai and South Korea.
