Oman International Bank S.A.O.G.

May 21 - Jun 03, 2001

Under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, the Sultanate of Oman has made remarkable progress in improving the quality of life and raising the standard of living for its people.

Oman International Bank SAOG, the biggest Omani bank, came into existence on 1st January, 1984 and became the first 100% Omani owned commercial bank in the Sultanate of Oman.

OIB established its presence in Pakistan in April 1996. It now has the largest network of branches in Oman with 86 branches in the country and 4 overseas branches at Mumbai and Cochin in India and Karachi and Lahore in Pakistan.

OIB is known as an innovative bank with a long list of firsts to its name. Besides several firsts, the important ones are: the first bank in the Gulf region to offer mobile banking service, the first Omani bank to issue a Visa Card, the first Omani bank to introduce multi currency ATM system and the only bank in Oman currently offering unique Phone Banking service. It is also the only bank at present in Oman, which enjoys the advantages of having a fully automated branch network.

A lot of credit to where the bank stands today goes to the high level of staff motivation and commitment. This has been possible, mainly due to the unrelenting staff development efforts and inspiring leadership from our founder H.E. Dr. Omar Bin Abdul Muniem Al Zawawi.

OIB is now well poised not only to maintain its leading position, but also to be known as a total quality service bank, that is committed to offering the best value to its customers.

OIB Pakistan has one of the best management teams in the country, bringing with them rich banking experience from multi-nationai banks. The bank provides full range of banking services to big national and multi-national corporations as well as high net worth individuals. The target market is a sophisticated one, which demands a high level of professionalism backed by innovation and modern approach to banking.
