Amen Bank, whose origins date back to 1906 has a special prestige in Tunisia. It is indeed the first, entirely Tunisian private bank since its acquisition in 1971 by the Ben Yedder family.
Amen Bank’s strategy is structured around three main areas:
Amen Bank, is an institution at the forefront of technology and has notably implemented the “EMERAUD” management system and is in the process of obtaining quality and security certifications according to CMMI and ISO standards.
Also a decision-making and analytical information system has been installed to improve risk management that takes into account the environmental and social risks on credit decisions and the internal rating system.
Amen Bank is proud to be the bank that offers the widest range of banking cards in Tunisia. It is the first bank to launch “home banking” and a 100% “on-line bank” (Amen First Bank).
Amen Bank has consolidated its fundamentals in conformity to good governance and by its equity strengthening through several capital increases. In 2013 the International Finance Company (IFC) became an Amen Bank shareholder through a capital increase.
Internationalization was strengthened with the creation of a currency trading room considered as the most dynamic in the market. Amen Bank is planning to have a footprint abroad through the creation of a subsidiary or the acquisition of an existing foreign bank.
Amen Bank enjoys a 13% share of the Tunisian Banking Market and has a network of over 154 branches and an equivalent number of ATM machines (cash dispensers) that are connected to the VISA and MASTER CARD networks.
