Kuwait Finance House - Bahrain (KFH-Bahrain) brings to the market a compelling concept in Islamic Banking combining both Islamic Investment Banking and Islamic Commercial Banking facilities. Established in October 2002 as the first fully-owned subsidiary of Kuwait Finance House, Kuwait – KFH-Bahrain’s mission is to deliver excellence and innovation through a broad and integrated range of financial products and services that are in perfect harmony with Shari’a principles.
Built on the same strengths and vision that made KFH-Kuwait a leader in the Islamic banking industry for about 40 years, KFH-Bahrain is committed to: the creation of assets and wealth for its stakeholders; participation in the advancement and growth of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and broader Middle Eastern economies; and the promotion of Islamic banking worldwide.
Furthermore, the Bank’s Corporate Finance and Investment Activities equally continue to garner attention as the Bank embarks upon innovative new projects and takes Islamic banking and finance in new global directions. This is no better reflected than through the Bank’s creation of investment opportunities and funds such as the active participation in significant Bahraini development projects which include the acquisition of a 50% ownership stake in Durrat Khaleej Al-Bahrain Company, which is engaged in the development of Durrat Al Bahrain, a resort city in Southern Bahrain. In addition, the bank holds a 52.5% group holding on Diyar Al Muharraq, the Kingdom's biggest mixed-use residential urban developments. The project lies just off the coast of Muharraq, the northern island and historical city centre of the Kingdom of Bahrain, which is also in close proximity to the international airport.
