BBK, formerly known as The Bank of Bahrain and Kuwait B.S.C, was established on 16th March 1971 in accordance with the Amiri decree and started operations a year later. BBK has been the pioneer in Commercial Banking for 50 years in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
In 1972, we began operations with a capital of BD 1 million (US$ 2.5 million). Today, it has grown to become one of the largest commercial banks in the Kingdom of Bahrain, with a capital base of BD. 303.9 million (US$ 806 million)
We have succeeded in building a name and reputation, respected locally as well as internationally. We have a strong local presence with a nationwide network of Financial Malls, branches and ATMs. In addition to domestic branches, we have operations in the State of Kuwait, the Republic of India and through a representative office of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. As a market leader, in 2006 we conceived the revolutionary ‘Financial Mall’ concept, housing partners such as CrediMax credit cards, telecommunication service, travel and insurance needs under one roof. The Financial Malls provide customer-convenient services, personal financial advisors and queue-beating automated systems. The concept is a giant step forward and replaces conventional time-consuming banking processes offering the brighter experience.
