Net financing and investments in sukuk reached AED 268 billion, up 12% year-on-year. Gross new investments in subscription and sukuk recorded AED 88 billion against AED 63 billion in FY2022. Over the year, the frequency of early settlement payments has greatly reduced by 31% year-on-year , resulting in net growth in new financing and sukuk disbursements to AED29 billion.

Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shaibani Director General of His Highness the Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Islamic Banksaying:

“The UAE economy continues to expand amid tightening global financial conditions due to high levels of inflation and subdued global growth. The GCC financial markets had a strong year with Dubai showing a strong double-digit gain of over 20% year-on-year supported by a strong IPO pipeline and increasing trading volume. The banking sector also showed strong resilience with healthy, growing balance sheets and higher profits.”

He added that the year 2023 has been an exceptional year for DIB since the bank obtained the highest profitability in its history.

“A stellar AED 7.01 billion in net profits that increased by 26% year-on-year is the result of our constant strategic efforts to grow this dynamic institution and maintain its leadership in the global Islamic finance space. In support of the UAE Year of Sustainability, we, together with the UAE Federation of Banks, commit to delivering AED 1 trillion in sustainable finance in the coming years. DIB has already been at the forefront of this commitment with $1.75 billion in sustainable sukuk already issued to support a growing ESG portfolio. With a long-term ESG strategy in place, the bank will continue to drive positive climate action in the UAE and beyond in the coming years.”
