May 28 2015, Sharjah, UAE: United Arab Bank (“UAB”)picked up two coveted awards at The Banker Middle East Industry Awards 2015, being named Best Retail Bank in the UAE and Most Innovative SME Bank. This recognition comes after the Bank acquired a trio of accolades from Banker ME in March, winning Best Loyalty Program for 'UAB Rewards’, Best Premium Credit Card for ‘UAB Visa Infinite’, and Best Co-Branded Credit Card for ‘UAB FC Barcelona’.

The annual awards ceremony, organised by publisher CPI Financial, celebrates the best of the regional banking industry, from more than 200 financial institutions. The winners of the awards are chosen by registered users of Banker Middle East, Islamic Business & Finance, FinanceME, WEALTH Arabia magazines, and users of CPI Financial, which include a number of the region's top financial services professionals. Bringing in thousands of votes, these awards are widely seen as some of the most sought after in the industry.

In response to receiving the two accolades, Paul Trowbridge, CEO of United Arab Bank, said: “These awards are testament to the quality of our product offering and our entire team; we are thrilled that voters have assessed UAB’s Retail and SME services as best-in-class in the UAE. It’s a sign of the progress we have made as UAB enters its fifth decade. Our priority now is to continue to build upon the Bank’s robust growth and cement strong, long-term personal relationships with our customers.
