Al Masraf reports net profit of AED 189 million in 2023 representing an increase of 43%

The Arab Bank for Investment & Foreign Trade (Al Masraf), has recently reported its Financial Results for the year ended 31 December 2023.
Al Masraf posted a Net Profit of AED 189 million for the year 2023, compared to a net profit of AED 132 million in 2022 representing an increase of 43%. The growth in net profit is a result of improved operating performance on the back of a favorable asset and liability mix and higher interest rates.
The customers’ deposits increased to AED 14,750 million as compared to AED 14,130 million in 2022 and the Bank’s Investments Portfolio increased by 44% to AED 3,836 million compared to AED 2,658 million in 2022. The increase was attributable to increase in the fixed income securities. As part of the active balance sheet management, the inter-bank borrowings increased to AED 2,042 million from AED 1,792 million in the previous year, an increase of 14%, whilst the net loans and advances were slightly lower at AED 12,901 million in 2023 from AED 13,422 million in 2022 as the Bank continued to de-risk and selectively book new business. The Balance sheet remains strong with capital adequacy ratios and liquidity metrics being well ahead of the regulatory requirements.
Commenting on the results, Farhat Omar Ben Gdara, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said: “I am delighted to announce that we have recorded another year of remarkable growth in net profits, driven by a well-defined business strategy, favorable product mix and exceptional customer service. Our relentless focus remains on delivering relevant products and services to our customers and using technology and service to constantly enhance their banking experience.”

We are confident, with the support of our highly dedicated and hardworking team we will continue to serve our customers effectively and efficiently.”
