The Islamic Bank of Asia ("IB Asia") was established in 2007 as a joint venture partnership between DBS Bank, one of the largest financial services groups in Asia, and prominent investors based in the Gulf Cooperation Council ("GCC"). This unique shareholding structure affords IB Asia enhanced visibility and intellectual insight across the two leading global Islamic banking hubs of Asia and the GCC.
Headquartered in Singapore and strategically positioned at the financial crossroads of Asia, IB Asia focuses on merchant banking activities including direct investment, advisory, treasury and capital markets services.
IB Asia's office in Bahrain was established in May 2008. This serves to further strengthen relationships with clients and investors in the GCC and develop IB Asia's coverage and investment banking businesses across the region.
IB Asia's Shariah Supervisory Board comprises world-renowned Islamic scholars who work with our experienced team of bankers to offer innovative products and business solutions that uphold Islamic banking principles.
