Islamic Banking

It all started on March 1st 2005, RHB Banking Group officially received the license for its Islamic Banking subsidiary - RHB Islamic - making it the first commercial banking group in Malaysia to have its full-fledged Islamic Bank.

That year, Bank Negara Malaysia's Governor, Tan Sri Dr. Zeti Akhtar Aziz officially handed over the Islamic Bank's operating license to RHB Banking Group.

Now, RHB Islamic offers a range of consumer and business banking financial solutions that are Shariah-based. Our services are available at our RHB Islamic branches, as well as all RHB Bank branches. These include over180 branches and more than 500 ATM's throughout the nation, with the added convenience of Phone and Online Banking.

As an alternative financial services provider to conventional banking, we are committed to provide our customers with a professional and rewarding banking experience.

With the past as our guide and your future success as our focus, we aim to be your trusted provider of Islamic financial solutions.

Global Financial Banking

RHB Capital's offshore businesses, particularly its commercial banking operations in Singapore, Thailand, Brunei and Vietnam, as well as its non-Ringgit based funding operations in Labuan, are collectively grouped under this SBU.

It is our aspiration to deliver superior customer experiences and shareholder value and therefore be recognised and respected as one of the top financial service groups in Asean.

The Group hopes to achieve these aspirations by helping its customers to succeed and satisfying all their financial needs as a one-stop centre, simplifying banking for the convenience of all.
