Active in the industry since the early 1980s, BNP Paribas was among the leading banks to recognise the importance of Islamic Banking. In line with industry growth in 2003, we launched BNP Paribas Najmah, the global Islamic Banking Division of the Group, based in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This was followed in 2011, by the establishment of a second hub in Malaysia.
We serve leading Islamic banks, Takaful (Islamic insurance), financial institutions, public entities, corporates, and high net worth individuals. Based in Najmah’s two hubs, are dedicated teams of professionals covering all asset classes, with the support of BNP Paribas Group’s global network.
All growing centres for Islamic banking and finance are covered from Bahrain; coverage is provided for the Middle East & Africa, Europe and North America, while Malaysia oversees the Asia Pacific region.
Our Islamic specialists, in conjunction with our renowned Sharia Board, structure and market a broad range of high-value added Sharia compliant investments and financing solutions, each tailored to the needs of our clients across borders.
Our success has been recognised by several awards since inception. We continue to build our competitive edge across the demanding Islamic finance markets by pioneering new products and investment structures to meet evolving industry needs and the needs of our clients globally.
