ADCB is now the UAE's third-largest financial institution and one of the nation's largest retail lenders, with over 1 million customers, net loans of AED 250 billion and customer deposits at AED 262 billion as at December 31, 2019.
H.E. Al Mubarak, Chairman of ADCB Group, commented:
"Under the thoughtful leadership of H.E. Eissa Al Suwaidi and the Board, ADCB has grown into a stable and strong institution. During his tenure, H.E. Al Suwaidi steered the bank through a number of challenges, including the 2008 global financial crisis. He was instrumental in the bank’s growth for over a decade, and guided ADCB through one of the region's most significant mergers, establishing a banking institution that is delivering long-term value for its shareholders and the nation."
"I would personally like to thank H.E. Eissa Al Suwaidi, H.E. Mohamed Dhaen Al Hamli and Mohamed Hamad Al Mehairi for their enormous contributions to ADCB’s success over the years."
"I’m honoured to serve as Chairman of the new Board as ADCB enters its next phase of development. Our priority as a Board will be to support and guide the business as we advance the strategy for sustainable growth."
Although the macroeconomic environment today presents immediate challenges, ADCB commands high-investment grade ratings and is well-positioned to manage through global economic volatility and the evolving global regulatory and competitive landscape, Al Mubarak also noted.
ADCB’s current institutional priorities include Emiratization and talent development, along with digitization, technology and operational development to better serve the existing customer base and establish new growth platforms.
H.E. Al Mubarak is Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer of Mubadala Investment Company, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Affairs Authority and a member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.
