SAUDI National Bank (SNB) was born from the kingdom’s biggest merger, between the National Commercial Bank and Samba Financial Group. SNB emerged as the country’s largest financial institution, with $239bn in total assets and $34bn in shareholder equity. Strong liquidity and a robust digital offering have perfectly positioned SNB for the healthy flow of capital — and made SNB a crucial part of the nation’s Vision 2030 agenda. The bank’s slogan — “Together, we build tomorrow” — reflects a focus on megaprojects, SMEs, and home-ownership. The BV judges declare Saudi National Bank winner of the 2021 award for Best Banking Merger (Middle East).
