Success through Diversity

Throughout our growing network in the Middle East and Africa and indeed around the world, our strength is routed in a culture of diversity. This applies to the markets in which we are active, to the broad range of clients we serve and the diverse individuals we employ to effectively meet their needs across borders and sectors.

As “The bank for a changing world”, we consider the 160 nationalities that make up our diverse teams to be among our most powerful assets.

We actively work to develop our organisation along these lines and make the recruitment, development and retention of talented and committed men and women from varied backgrounds and experience a top priority.

We also employ a “Diversity Roadmap” dedicated to ensuring an environment of equal opportunity regardless of origin, age and gender. We place a particular emphasis on the diversification of our senior management roles ensuring that we have good representation of local talent.

By empowering all of our people, we are better placed to serve our clients and offer them unique perspectives and world-class strategies and solutions. We take enormous pride in our culture of diversity and value the role it plays in our success.
