Arab Bank - Jordan

Established in the 1960's as a means to offer joint banking services for the Arab world holistically by a Palestinian entrepreneur in New York, Arab Bank has since grown into the largest Arab banking branch network worldwide with over 400 branches in 29 countries, spanning five continents.

Headquartered in Amman, Jordan, Arab Bank has provided competitive products to its customers based on demand, and introduced two Sharia-complaint funds in early June from its Islamic banking division in tandem with the rising popularity of Islamic finance in the Middle East.

Cover Story 5

The fragile finances of Formula One
By this time next year, five of the current 11 Formula One teams will probably be out of business. It’s now not a question of if it will happen but merely when it will happen. Marussia and Caterham have already gone and the Sauber, Lotus and Force India teams seem ready to join them.

That is the harsh truth that spells out the finances of Formula One today.
