The award was presented to George Richani, General Manager – International Banking Group at NBK, at an award ceremony held on the occasion of the International Monetary Fund Annual meeting held in Washington.
NBK was chosen the Best Bank in Kuwait based on input from industry analysts, corporate executives and banking consultants. Criteria for choosing the winners included growth in assets, profitability, strategic relationships, customer service, competitive pricing, and innovative products.

The Bank’s ratings are supported by its high capitalization, prudent lending policies, and its disciplined approach to risk management, in addition to its highly recognized and very stable management team. NBK was also named among Global Finance’s list of the 50 safest banks in the world for twelve consecutive times and was awarded as the Best Bank in Kuwait in 2016 by the Banker, Euromoney and Global Finance.
