Born out of a strong commitment of its founding father Mr. Mirwais Azizi to establish a high-quality, customer-focused, serviceoriented Afghan Bank in 2006 with a professional and entrepreneurial character catering to the diverse business needs of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Azizi Bank is progressively growing as the ‘Professionals’ Bank of Afghanistan’ with an objective of building the finest quality bank of the world in Afghanistan in the coming years.
EFFICIENT BANKING SOLUTIONS
Ever since its inception, Azizi Bank has been capitalizing on its rich experience and innovation with a strong customer-centric and a resultoriented approach, broad knowledge of the industry vertical and a team of skilled employees. It is no surprise that Azizi Bank has been highly successful in establishing the dominant position as a leading bank in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
In a conscious effort to offer impeccable service and serve clients better, Azizi Bank has based its business philosophy on core tenets of operational excellence, customer-centeredness, product leadership, people and sustainability. Over the years, Azizi Bank has maintained a very healthy capital adequacy ratio of over 21%, which is a sure sign of its intrinsic strength.
Being the largest commercial bank in terms of network, customer base and trade finance business, Azizi Bank has undergone a massive transformation of its core banking by procuring the world’s best banking software – Flex Cube – from Oracle. Moreover, it has been relying on technology to become a game changer in the banking industry, has expanded its product and services portfolio to widen market reach, and has hired the services of a US consulting firm – Alvarez & Marsal – for taking a host of strategic initiatives.
FOSTERING FINANCIAL INCLUSION
To reach out to the unbanked sections of society, Azizi Bank has introduced door-step banking services wherein they are offering comprehensive banking services like account opening and biometric authentication to provide a seamless customer experience by fully utilizing its network across all the channels. As part of its CSR initiatives, Azizi Bank has provided aids and financial assistance to local educational institutions and NGOs, and is playing a major role in supporting women empowerment, cultural enhancement & environmental sustainability initiatives.
