Benefits of membership
Exposure to a network of top Arab banks, senior bankers and financial professionals
The ABA hosts monthly events for its members, who include the leading banks, accounting firms and lawyers involved in Arab banking and finance in London. Additional ad hoc events are organised in response to specific requests and the availability of officials and bankers visiting London from the Middle East
Individual access to the Arab banking community in the United Kingdom and the Arab world.
Through decades of experience working for Arab and international banks, ABA staff and board members are well connected in the Arab world and the expatriate Arab financial community. They can facilitate contacts and meetings with banks and institutions in the U.K. and in the Middle East.
Ability to raise your institution’s standing in Europe’s largest and most important Arab financial market.
The ABA can help your institution plan or participate in a wide range of events, from small invitation-only round-table discussions to the ABA’s own flagship Gala Dinner.
Ability to post a personal professional profile (for individual members) or a webpage (for corporate members) that can be seen by anyone visiting the Association’s website
All individual members are able to post a 250 word professional profile, including their contact details, on the ABA’s website. Corporate members are able to post a full-page profile, accessed through the website’s dedicated “Corporate Members” tab.
A gateway to and from Arab banking and financial markets
The ABA brings together the bankers and financial professionals who are shaping financial markets in the Arab world and leading the deployment of Arab capital into overseas markets. ABA membership is an essential tool for those seeking to access the region’s financial markets, and for those already in the region who are building bridges to other global financial centres.
Information about Arab banks and financial institutions operating in the United Kingdom and their senior executives.
The ABA’s website provides regular updates on Arab banking issues and personalities, while the Association’s magazine provides interviews with leading individuals and analyses of current trends in Arab financial systems.
