Following the conclusion of its Annual General Meeting (AGM), Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) announced that the assembly has approved the distribution of a 12.5% cash dividend for the year 2011, with the concurrence of the Central Bank of the U.A.E.
His Excellency Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shaibani, Director-General of His Highness The Ruler's Court of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Islamic Bank, said: "The strong financial results delivered by DIB in 2011 are testament to the bank's proven business model, robust liquidity position and stable funding base. We are pleased to be able to share our success in 2011 with our shareholders, and look forward to their continued support in 2012 as DIB maintains its prudent focus on diversification and managed growth."
In 2011, DIB continued with its ambitious plans to expand its physical presence across the UAE, opening seven new branches, including the bank's first stand-alone Al Islami Private Banking branch. DIB also expanded the alternative banking channels available to customers with the launch of its Express Banking Terminals, giving customers 24-hour access to a wide range of banking services usually only available in branch, online or through phone banking.
The bank's contribution to both the financial services industry and the wider community continued to be recognised in 2011, with DIB winning awards at the Islamic Finance News Awards, EMEA Finance Achievement Awards, Forbes Middle East Credit Card Rankings 2011 and The Arab Achievement Awards, among many others.
