Ajman Bank announced today that it has been awarded the title of 'Fastest Growing Bank' in the UAE on the much coveted Banker Middle East Industry Awards 2012.

The accolade was presented to Mohamed Amiri, the Bank's Acting Chief Executive Officer, at a special awards ceremony held in Dubai on 12th June.
Mohamed Amiri commented on the winning: "We are very pleased to receive this award, which was given based on Ajman Bank's robust financial results. The winning reinforces Ajman Bank's leading position on the Islamic Banking front and proves the Bank's resilience and continued excellent performance since its inception in 2009."
He also stated: "Our profitable outlook has always been coupled with an effective risk management policy, which has been a vital component of our Bank's overall strategy and has allowed us to both maintain consistency in our business model and support sustainable growth. Our objective is to strive to consistently provide our customers with best-in-class Islamic banking advice, products, and services and to build a successful banking franchise through the efficient delivery of optimal solutions to our clients."
The award follows Ajman Bank's reporting of a 75% increase in net profit for the year ended 31 December 2011.
