Culture & Careers

Our culture

​​Bank ABC is all about people.

Banking is evolving, and so are we. We operate in an increasingly challenging global environment, where today’s banking is increasingly digital, bespoke and personal.

Our culture emphasises performance while promoting responsible behaviour. We firmly believe our people are integral to our success and want our employees to have thriving careers with us. That is why we continuously strive to support their learning and development.

Our history and diversity set us apart. Our global footprint from our headquarters in Bahrain, to our presence in MENA, Brazil, Europe, the USA and Singapore makes us unique.

This diversity makes good business sense and enables us to better serve our clients and wider communities.

When we asked our employees how they would describe Bank ABC, they used words such as ‘supportive’, ‘friendly’ and ‘innovative’. We are one of MENA’s largest international banks, yet we pride ourselves on staying true to the values that have underpinned our growth since we were founded over 40 years ago.

Core values

Client Centric

Our values are at the heart of our culture. We are collaborative, focused on our clients, dependable, open and connected. Our colleagues describe Bank ABC as being part of a family that looks after one another.
