Economic Growth

Economic Growth

Growth is at the heart of Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, and ADCB is supporting economic growth through internal and commercial investments. We are executing a growth strategy that aims to create sustainable long-term value for shareholders—and strengthen the UAE banking sector in the process. We also support economic growth across the UAE by making efficient and responsible investments in infrastructure projects, and by developing new programs that help individuals, local businesses of all sizes, and society make sustainable progress.

Financial Performance

ADCB values our shareholders' investments and strives to deliver significant returns to shareholders through responsible internal operations and successful commercial decisions. We endeavour to balance financial rewards on investments in the short term with long-term sustainability initiatives that ensure business continuity and create value.

For a detailed discussion of ADCB's financial performance, we invite readers to review our investor relations website.

Infrastructure Development

Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 calls for building a sufficient and resilient infrastructure that can support a more diverse and sustainable economy, while taking necessary steps to protect the environment. ADCB supports this vision by participating in public-private partnerships that aim to build new energy, transport, telecommunications and technology assets.

Supporting Business Growth

ADCB's Wholesale Banking Group supports economic growth and development by helping a broad range of business clients achieve their goals. The group's core focus is on the UAE market and expansion segments such as Small and Medium-Size Enterprises (SMEs), Mid-Corporate and Government-related businesses.

ADCB Supports SMEs

SMEs are well known for their strong contribution to economic growth. Thus, ADCB actively focuses on servicing this customer segment as part of our commitment to sustainable growth. ADCB and the Khalifa Fund have also partnered to promote entrepreneurship forums in the UAE, to encourage discussion and innovative ways to build the entrepreneurial framework for SMEs in the UAE.

For example, ADCB's Purely Business is a Web portal designed to meet the needs of the SME business community. Purely Business offers access to a support network that provides expert knowledge, management solutions, financing advice and other resources of value to anyone seeking to start, maintain or grow a business.
