Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank plans North Africa expansion

Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank plans North Africa expansion

<p>Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank plans to branch out in North Africa as the UAE-based lender seeks to reach a larger population. The bank applied for licenses in Algeria and Libya and is considering new operations in Tunisia and Morocco. Chief executive Tirad Mahmoud said the bank is seeking to expand in nations with a critical mass in terms of population and economic activity. Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank has also moved into countries including Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Sudan, Mahmoud said. The bank wants to be better placed to serve companies, such as Dubai-based mall operator Majid al-Futtaim, which operate across the Middle East and North Africa. Banks that comply with Islam&rsquo;s ban on interest have become increasing popular after the revolts implemented Islamists into power in some North African countries.</p>

Dubai-Based Insurer Salama/IAIC Ratings Lowered As Problems At Reinsurance Subsidiaries Continue; Outlook Negative

Dubai-Based Insurer Salama/IAIC Ratings Lowered As Problems At Reinsurance Subsidiaries Continue; Outlook Negative

<p>Standard &amp; Poor&rsquo;s Ratings Services has lowered the counterparty credit and financial strength ratings on Dubai-based Salama/Islamic Arab Insurance Co. (Salama/IAIC) to &lsquo;BBB+&rsquo; from &lsquo;A-&rsquo; . The outlook is negative. The counterparty credit and financial strength ratings on Salama/IAIC&rsquo;s wholly-owned, Malaysia-based reinsurance subsidiaries, BEST RE and BEST RE Family have also been lowered to &lsquo;BBB&rsquo; from &lsquo;A-&rsquo; . The consolidated Salama/IAIC group displays a satisfactory business risk profile, and a strong financial risk profile. S&amp;P has revised its view of the BEST RE subgroup&rsquo;s group status to its parent to strategically important from core because the subgroup&rsquo;s activities, size, and earnings potential have reduced. Despite the group and subgroup&rsquo;s current difficulties, the rating agency continues to regard the consolidated Salama group&rsquo;s capital adequacy as extremely strong. The outlook can be revised to stable if the situation at BEST RE stabilizes without causing material financial or reputational issues for Salama/IAIC.</p>
