Key BMI role for Khalifa   

Gulf Daily News - 05 August, 2010

Bahraini retail and commercial banking institution BMI Bank yesterday announced the appointment of Bahraini Salah Khalifa to the position of head of Islamic Financial Services (IFS).

Mr Khalifa, whose previous position was as a director of Investments and Capital Markets at First Investment Bank (FIB), a Bahrain-based Sharia-compliant investment bank, will be responsible to drive the IFS strategy.

This will deliver solid, sustainable growth for the business combined with a diversified and innovative product offering and service.

"Khalifa is a seasoned banker with over 17 years of experience in investment and corporate banking with extensive knowledge in Islamic banking and I am pleased to welcome him into our family," BMI chief executive officer Jamal Al Hazeem said.

"Our IFS division was set up with a vision of becoming a leading Islamic service provider in both the commercial and retail industry and we are confident in Khalifa's ability to deliver."

In his previous role at FIB, Mr Khalifa looked after corporate finance and structuring, asset management, treasury, financial institutions and debt capital markets. Prior to joining FIB, Khalifa was the head of Islamic capital markets at Calyon Credit Agricole, responsible for the development of Islamic institutional banking in the region.
