It all started with a single belief...
Over a decade ago, AfrAsia Bank embarked on a journey with a single belief: that of connecting people, places and possibilities by doing things others said could not be done. After 13 years of building bridges between Africa, Asia and the World, the Bank continues to strengthen its founding belief by keeping alive its purposeful approach of ‘believe different’ in everything it does.
Turning our belief into action
From daring to disrupt, thinking beyond conventions, and developing a network of believers, we anchor our ‘believe different’ philosophy on three fundamentals:
- Relationships that unite passionate people
- Opportunities that thrive on expertise and agility
- Growth that creates sustainable value
Believing, Banking and Achieving Different
In 2007, the Bank was founded with a vision to pursue the growth potential of the African Lions matching the rise of the Asian Tigers. More than a decade later, our success extends beyond our capabilities and jurisdictional advantages to our expertise and sophistication.
