An Overview of Banking in the UAE
There is a total of roughly 50 international and local banks scattered throughout the country. The banking system is considered to be fairly stable thanks to the banks’ liquidity buffers and resilient capital levels.

Most banks in the UAE are funded by deposits. Their strong capital levels provide a large buffer that absorbs any losses.

The UAE has four different types of banks. These types of banks include:

  • ⦁    Commercial banks.
  • ⦁    Investment banks.
  • ⦁    Industrial banks.
  • ⦁    Islamic banks.

Islamic banks are a type of bank that has grown in popularity. In recent years, UAE banks have worked to expand their banking services to consumers using Islamic financial requirements. This is important for the many Islamic citizens living in the country.


Aside from Islamic banks in the nation, the UAE banks also cater to foreigners and international consumers. They have adopted several international regulations and offer all their banking services in both Arabic and English.

A few international regulations that UAE banks comply with include:

  • ⦁    International Accounting Standard.
  • ⦁    International Financial Reporting Standards.
  • ⦁    Capital Adequacy Regulations from the Basel III Regulations.
