"As we advance into a more digital space, it becomes even more important for us to identify and integrate more convenient solutions for the consumer. Such international recognitions confirm the resilience of Noor Bank's commitment in providing best in class innovative services to customers towards enhancing their overall banking experience."
Joseph D. Giarraputo, Publisher and Editorial Director of Global Finance said, "This award recognises the work Noor Bank has done with SME's, particularly around their working capital needs - a market segment that is often overlooked by banks.
