Muscat: BankDhofar announced the opening of its Maisarah Islamic banking branch in Azaiba in the coming weeks.
The branch is in very advanced stages and its opening further cements its commitment to putting its customers first, Oman's community and economic stability.
Maisarah, the newest Islamic banking branch, has a team of highly skilled Islamic banking specialists. Utilising the most advanced technology to ensure Maisarah operates smoothly, they will offer a complete suite of Shariah-compliant Islamic services that focus on Islamic principals.
The team has been busy undergoing extensive training on the product portfolio, which includes savings accounts, car loans and other facilities.
CEO BankDhofar, Tony Mahoney said, "We are really excited about the opening of our first of many Maisarah branches and we are on track to see it open in the coming weeks. It is a pretty electrifying time for BankDhofar and banking in Oman."
The new Maisarah branch will be located in Azaiba, the location has been chosen with customers in mind and is well placed to serve all Shariah-compliant services to priority, public and business customers. Further Maisarah branches are planned for Salalah and Sohar with the Sohar branch opening in April 2013.
This will solidify the bank's presence of Maisarah in Oman's biggest cities. Maisarah meaning ease or comfort is appropriate as it is focused on allowing its customers to bank confidently and comfortably with products that are in their favour.
Maisarah is committed to the development of Islamic banking and is well on its way to the best Islamic bank in the Gulf. The services, expertise and opening of the new branch supports Maisarah's goal to provide Islamic banking as it should be and become the best Islamic bank.
