BLME is a UK regulated bank with GCC based shareholders. We are UK focussed with extensive GCC experience. BLME bridges the gap between the two regions with our expertise, network and specialist knowledge. 

BLME's branch in the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC) provides a service with a base for its Islamic finance operations in the Gulf and forms an integral part of BLME's strategy to expand across the region. This expansion will help to enhance BLME’s position as the leading UK Islamic bank that provides wealth management solutions to GCC nationals. BLME's Dubai office provides our existing and potential client base with valuable information about investment opportunities within the GCC and the UK.

Our Wealth Management and Treasury teams establish and manage our relationships with banks both in London and the GCC. We facilitate the setting up of business lines with counterparties and encourage the development of reciprocal business.
