An Introduction

Outperforming Is Our Strategy

The temple of Kom Ombo is actually two temples in one. It’s equally dedicated to the gods of Haroeris and Sobek. It was built on a spot where crocodiles traditionally basked in the sun along the Nile.

Through the innumerable changes that both Egypt and CIB have lived through over the years, we have remained committed to a strategy that always prioritises our clients. In implementing that strategy, CIB has focused on delivering sustainable profitability and creating value for our clients, shareholders, and community at large.

Our strategy is simple; it revolves around outperforming in all aspects of our business. In that quest for excellence, CIB handpicks its staff members, continuously upgrading and enhancing their skill set through comprehensive training programs, as we believe they are vital to our success formula. Because we offer our employees a host of career prospects and development opportunities, we attract and retain some of Egypt’s strongest banking professionals. This in turn translates into CIB’s remarkable ability to expand the scope of our high-quality products and unrivalled banking services to better suit the constantly evolving needs of our client base.

Building a strong brand image that reinforces CIB’s standing as “A Bank To Trust” has never been a one-man job, as this responsibility extends to each and every one of our employees.

Our Vision

To uphold CIB’s distinct reputation as a leading and trusted financial institution in Egypt, respected for its people, strong core values, performance and commitment to inclusive, responsible and sustainable growth.

Our Mission

To create outstanding stakeholder value by providing best-in-class financial solutions to the individuals and enterprises that drive Egypt’s economy. Through our innovative product offerings, superior customer service, staff development strategies and commitment to sustainability, we will realise our ambitions and help shape the future of banking in Egypt for years to come.

Our Objective

To grow and help others grow.
