Noor Bank becomes National Bonds distributor
Dubai, June 7, 2014
Dubai-based Noor Bank said it has been appointed as a distribution agent by National Bonds Corporation (NBC), a unique UAE leader in Sharia compliant savings and investment schemes, to extend the availability of the savings programme.
Hussain Al Qemzi, the CEO of Noor Bank and Mohammad Qasim Al Ali, the CEO of National Bonds Corporation, signed the MoU in this regard at Noor Bank’s headquarters.
The agreement will enable UAE residents to benefit from the savings scheme’s profit sharing Mudaraba structure whilst enjoying its richest rewards programme, by purchasing National Bonds from any of the 12 Noor Bank branches located in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
As part of the agreement, National Bonds will also join Noor Bank's Direct Debit Scheme (DDS) platform recently facilitated by the UAE Central Bank.
This will allow Noor Bank to register any National Bonds customer with the DDS without the necessity of him or her maintaining an account with Noor Bank. This is another major milestone towards enabling UAE residents to save regularly without visiting any of the existing 700 distribution outlets for National Bonds.
Al Qemzi said: “This collaboration will allow us to add yet another innovative & rewarding product to our portfolio, enabling us to offer a more comprehensive banking experience to our clients. It is yet another example of Noor Bank’s commitment to delivering innovative, convenient and integrated banking solutions.”
Al Ali said: "We are confident that our strategic agreement with Noor Investment Group will complement our vision of cultivating a healthy and sustainable savings culture in the UAE."
"As part of this priority, our association with a reliable and customer centric partner such as Noor Bank will certainly strengthen our ultimate goal to make saving a convenient experience for all. We look forward to sharing our unique savings products with Noor’s discerning customers to inspire them in becoming financially informed and more empowered," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
