Emirates NBD has become the first bank to establish a branch at Jumeirah Lake Towers - a residential and business development in Dubai.
The new branch, which is located on the ground floor of the Almas Tower, has been named the "Gold Branch" as it will aim to offer customers a comprehensive range of specialised gold products and services, providing retail and business customers with a "one-stop shop" for investing in gold.
"Over the past 12 months we have embarked on a more vigorous pace for strategic expansion across the UAE with the opening of 15 other new branches in addition to this one," said Jamal Bin Ghalaita, deputy chief executive officer at Emirates NBD.
"The opening of the 'Gold Branch' is in line with our ongoing expansion programme, and the bank now has a total of 110 branches and 650 ATMs nationwide."
Almas Tower is Dubai's second tallest commercial tower after the Burj Khalifa and a centrepiece among the 87 towers that make up Jumeirah Lake Towers.
