A Message from John
 
As Noor Bank embarks on a journey into the next decade, we will continue to enhance our suite of Shari'a compliant products and services in order to deliver outstanding customer experiences.
In line with this objective, we are introducing our wealth management proposition called 'Noor Wealth', which will mark a fresh and more prestigious image for all our premium offering. Noor Wealth will proudly wear Noor Bank's heritage and will provide efficient and tailored services to its chosen client base.
I am also pleased to share the launch of the 'Noor Art' project. The initiative by Noor Wealth will play a prominent role in promoting art within the UAE, as well as Emirati artists, and investments in art.
I look forward to the outcomes this initiative will bring, as we continue to strive to make a difference for you, our valued customer.
John Iossifidis
Chief Executive Officer, Noor Bank
