Corporate Banking

Opening an account

The branch serves the so-called "accredited investors" as defined in the Rulebook of the Central Bank of Bahrain. Hence, large Corporates and High Net-Worth Individuals are the targeted group of clients for its services.

To on-board an entity as a client; the candidate must meet at least one of the criteria mentioned below:
• Individuals holding financial assets (either singly or jointly with their spouse) of USD 1,000,000 or more;
• Companies, partnerships, trusts or other commercial undertakings, which have financial assets available for investment of not less than USD 1,000,000; or
• Governments, supranational organisations, central banks or other national monetary authorities, and state organisations whose main activity is to invest in financial instruments (such as state pension funds).
• And retail investors who voluntarily elect to be treated as an accredited investor who cannot benefit from the specific protections granted to retail investors.

On the other hand, for the branch to be able to undertake transactions denominated in Bahraini Dinar and/or with a resident of the Kingdom of Bahrain, these transactions must be "wholesale" in nature. Wholesale transactions are defined in terms of transaction size (broadly, BD 7 million or more for a credit or deposit transaction, and US$ 100,000 or more for an investment transaction).

The remittances through these accounts, are subject to the tariff of fees and commissions of the branch.
