NBP performance lauded

General Karachi

Karachi: National Bank of Pakistan hosted a lunch for journalists here Monday. Talking on the occasion, Adnan Adil Hussain, Senior Vice President & Head Consumer & Retail Banking Division, NBP, apprised the media about NBP’s recent achievements and initiatives.

He said: “Despite numerous challenges, NBP’s performance during the past 5 years stands out. Unlike other banks which target the high end of the market and operate with a single bottom line in focus, NBP is in a double bottom line game. Its products and strategies are based primarily around national priorities and a common man. With its sprawling network of branches across the national landscape, NBP is poised to outreach the most disadvantaged and left over strata of population and provide them essential financial services.”

He cited example of NBP Advance Salary which is the single largest personal loan product in the industry with a market share of nearly 52%. “Agriculture is yet another area where NBP demonstrates its national commitment and resolve” Adnan said.

National Bank of Pakistan, AAA/A1+’ Triple A / A-One Plus rated by JCRVIS Credit Rating Company Limited JCRVIS, NBP is the largest banking institution of the country. NBP has become the first ever bank of the country to cross the ‘One Trillion Rupee’ bench mark with more than 16500 employees and 1283 branch network across Pakistan and 23 overseas branches and representative offices in four countries and unique footprint in South Asia, Central Asia and Middle East.
