Venture Capital Bank is positioned to offer
its clients a broad range of superior financial services and unique investment opportunities across a number of promising asset classes in the GCC and MENA markets.
Through a robust business model, the Bank is established and operated as a venture capital based investment bank that is active
in four principal areas.
Venture Capital Bank (VCBank) is the first Islamic investment bank in the GCC and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) to specialise in venture capital investment opportunities designed to drive business growth in portfolio investment, and provide risk adjusted returns on investments.
Established in the Kingdom of Bahrain in October 2005, VCBank operates under an Islamic investment banking licence from the Central Bank of Bahrain. With an authorised capital of US$ 500 million and initial paid up capital of US$ 165 million, the Bank benefits from the financial backing and support of a selected group of regional shareholders, an experienced team of industry professionals, and a close-knit network of strategic partners, business associates and allies.
VCBank offers clients a broad range of superior services and unique investment opportunities across a number of promising asset classes in the GCC and MENA markets. The Bank is active in four principal areas: venture capital and business development, private equity, real estate, and financial advisory.
VCBank is uniquely positioned to lead the development of the nascent venture capital industry in the region by providing unmatched levels of support for fundamentally strong, undervalued, small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) that lack the necessary resources for growth and expansion.
