In 1969, when we at COMMERCIAL BANK OF DUBAI started out little did we know that sheer grit and determination would get us where we are today. An Emiri Decree issued by His Highness the Late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the founder of modern Dubai, laid the cornerstone of COMMERCIAL BANK OF DUBAI. We started out as a joint venture of Commerzbank, Chase Manhattan Bank and Commercial Bank of Kuwait. A minority stake was held by a few UAE businessmen.
By 1982, little more than a decade later, we evolved into a National Public Shareholding company. A feat complimented by an exponential increase in the capital base and mammoth restructuring of our operations. The feather in the cap came when the Government of Dubai became a key shareholder.
Over the decades, we have transformed ourselves into a progressive and modern banking institution. We are supported by a sturdy financial base and reigned by a strong and stable management. The proof of which lies with our customers who have stood by us over the years.
Today, we are in a position to offer you a range of retail and commercial banking products and services at par with any other bank in the industry. A banking experience better than the best; with a network of branches throughout the UAE. In the future, we aspire to take on the financial services industry head on so as to be able to meet your expectations of better interest rates, new services, easier access and better technology.
