Al Baraka Bank comments & notesTop

26 February 2008

Al Baraka (or AlBaraka) Banking Group is a Bahrain based bank with a dual listing on the Dubai International Financial Exchange (DIFX) - ticker BARKA - and the Bahrain Stock Exchange (BSE) - ticker ABG. ABG operates in 12 countries with 240 branches with the following banking units:

  • Algeria - Banque Al Baraka D'Algerie
  • Bahrain - Al Baraka Islamic Bank
  • Egypt - The Egyptian Saudi Finance Bank
  • Indonesia - ABG Representative office
  • Jordan - Jordan Islamic Bank
  • Lebanon - Al Baraka Bank Lebanon
  • Pakistan - Al Baraka Islamic Bank
  • South Africa - Al Baraka Bank
  • Sudan - Al Baraka Bank Sudan
  • Syria - Albaraka Bank Syria (under establishment)
  • Tunisia - Bank Et-Tamweel Al- Tunisi Al Saudi
  • Turkey - Al Baraka Turk Participation Bank

The DIFX website gives the AlBaraka Bank Group website as www.albaraka.com but that is the website for Al-Tawfeek Company for Investment Funds Ltd. The connection between Al Tawfeek Company and Al Baraka is not clear (there's no mention of Al Tawfeek in the 2007 FY financial statements for Al Baraka Banking Group). The website www.barakaonline.com is for Al Baraka Islamic Bank in Bahrain, while www.abg.bh is for Al Baraka Banking Group. Contact tel & fax above is for AlBaraka Islamic Bank in Bahrain.

Maximum foreign ownership allowance unknown. Figure of 49% given as an estimate only and is probably wrong.
