The financials demonstrate our ability to grow our Net Interest Income and Fee and Commission revenue streams while continuing to diversify our funding base. Our Private banking business has been the primary driver of growth in both sides of the Balance Sheet in Q1,” said Fahad Al Khalifa, al khaliji’s Group Chief Executive Officer.

Al Khalifa added that in recognition of the current operating environment, al khaliji bank will continue to effectively manage its credit risk and prudently build its impairment provisions.
