Al Baraka's website wins top ranking
Manama, February 1, 2011
Al Baraka Banking Group (ABG) announced that its corporate website has been ranked number one among largest Bahraini listed companies for year.
The results were announced during the GCC 2010 Webranking annual survey and awards.
The announcement was made during the 'Success in Digital Investor Relations' seminar held in Abu Dhabi under the support of the Middle East Investor Relations Society.
The Webranking scoring was based on technical survey handled by an independent international firm Hallvarsson & Hallvarsson (H&H), the specialist firm based in Sweden.
'The H&H Webranking survey 2010 highlights the growing importance of online communications with investors, analysts and business media, a trend which corporations in the GCC increasingly recognise as a key aspect of any successful investor relations strategy,' H&H executive partner Staffan Lindgren said.
'Winning this advance website ranking is proof of Al Baraka's commitments to the investors and shareholders,' Al Baraka Banking Group president and chief executive Adnan Ahmed Yousif said.
'It also motivates us to continue work on implementing a high level of online communications with the investment community, markets and clients.
'Our priority is to maintain accessibility to the fair data of our financial position and performance and maintain a high level of transparency,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
