MUSCAT Bank Nizwa has appointed Tariq Al Farsi as general manager for retail and private banking. Farsi has a successful and distinguished track record of building and running Islamic banks and brings more than 11 years’ experience in investment, retail and corporate banking in various multi-national and regional financial institutions.

He was a general manager in Noor Investment Group and was also a senior team member of Sharjah Islamic Bank, RAK Bank and HSBC.

Farsi said, “Being an Omani, it gives me immense pleasure to be part of something this big; launching the first Islamic bank for the Sultanate. Our team will go down in history as being the pioneers of the first Islamic bank. Until now, I’ve been pursuing my career in Islamic banking elsewhere in the region but with the establishment of Bank Nizwa, it’s a dream come true. I will be working in a country where my heart is.”

Ahmed Saif Al Rawahi, chairman of the Bank Nizwa Founding Committee, said, “Hot on the heels of the announcement of our CEO last week it gives me great pleasure to bring Farsi on board. He brings a wealth of experience of retail, corporate and Islamic banking and has been a key member of the management teams behind the creation of two large scale Islamic banks in the GCC region.”
