Hashim Shawa, Chairman and General Manager of Bank of Palestine, said, "These impressive financial results confirm the continuous growth of the bank, and are a result of our expansion and proliferation. Bank of Palestine continues to enjoy the widest banking presence in Palestine with 46 branches. The bank has also upped its effort to reach new customers not only in Palestine, but also outside the country, by establishing a dedicated Diaspora Unit, aimed at reaching out to Palestinians in the Diaspora to provide them with banking and business advisory services. During the last few months, the bank also expanded the services it provides to its customers, by introducing new diversified products such as Bancassurance. During 2011, the bank established PalPay, a subsidiary company that provides electronic payment solutions, to enable the payment of different utility bills through the bank"s Point of Sale network spread throughout Palestine."

Shawa also attributed the strong performance to the bank"s conservative approach, which helped it weather several regional and international crises, as well as BoP"s strong corporate governance and sound risk management. During 2011, Bank of Palestine began the implementation of the second phase of the Operational Risk Management project in cooperation with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), paving the way to becoming the first bank in Palestine to implement "Basel II" standards.

This growth coincides with the bank"s several other achievements during 2011, including winning international awards for excellence, such as the Euromoney Award for Excellence 2011 for "Best Bank in Palestine", and the JP Morgan "2011 Elite Quality Recognition Award for Outstanding Achievement of Best-in-Class", for the tenth consecutive year.
