From the time of its foundation in 2004, Afghanistan International Bank has been recognized as a pioneering leader in the country’s banking sector. Now, a decade later, we have become firmly established as Afghanistan’s most trusted and respected financial institution.
This status is underlined by having two major international clearing banks as correspondents – the only private bank in Afghanistan to do so – and repeated international awards that reflect our commitment to the highest industry standards and global best practice.
From inception, the major objective of the Bank has been to assist in developing the Afghan economy and to conduct business in accordance with international governance standards. Its success in this regard is reflected in many prestigious award received from authoritative industry bodies.
Our mission is to foster economic development in Afghanistan, to be a catalyst for growth, and ultimately contribute to the prosperity of the country and its people.
We strive to adhere to international best practices in corporate governance, financial and risk management (including anti-money laundering and ‘know your customer’), customer service, operations, information technology, and internal controls. A major factor in our success is dedication to staff development and training within a culture of integrity and professionalism.
Through our financial performance and the specific investments we have made in our people and infrastructure, AIB has become a positive emblem for achievement and transformation, despite its challenging environment.
As we look ahead to our tenth anniversary we remain committed to enabling a better future for Afghanistan, and we are proud to play a role in shaping the opportunities that lie ahead.
