Al Eisa: This Award Reflects our Distinction and Enabling Investment Environment in the Kingdom Samba Named "Best Investment Bank in the Middle East and North Africa, 2007"

Global Finance, a premier global banking and financial magazine, has named Samba Financial Group for the second year in the row "Best Investment Bank in the Middle East and North Africa, 2007". Judges have chosen Samba to win this prestigious accolade because of the distinction and supremacy of its investment services, after evaluating many financial and banking institutions in the Middle East and Africa for the past 12 months, using a wide range of criteria.

Mr. Eisa Al Eisa, Managing Director and CEO of Samba Financial Group, commented on the achievement "winning this accolade for the second consecutive year reflects our differentiation in providing our clients with investment services in global standards as well as our persistent endeavors to develop such services to maintain our pioneering position, not only on the local level, but also on the Middle East and Africa levels, where the competition is wider, as the accolade is targeted by many strong banking and financial institutions, and evaluation is conducted by prominent global bankers".

"Winning this Award by A Saudi bank, namely Samba, for the second year in the row reflects the enabling investment environment in the Kingdom and the generous support of this sector by our Government" Al Eisa said, and added:
"This Accolade comes within a short time of being named "Best Bank in Saudi Arabia" by Global Finance for the second consecutive year also, and winning the Banker's "Deal of the Year" Award for the third time in 4 years, as well as many other accolades, which drive us to proceed steadily with our developmental strategy that makes Samba choice No. 1 for the clients".

Finally, Al Eisa extended his thanks and appreciation to Samba's clients for their confidence in the Bank, and commended Samba's staff for their professional efforts, which stand firmly behind the Bank's accomplishments.
