National Bank of Bahrain Donates To BIBF Dealing Room

Manama, Bahrain – 30 March, 2015: National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) donated five thousand Bahraini dinars in support of the BIBF Dealing Room, the first educational training facility of its kind in the region. The dealing room was launched in October 2014 as part of BIBF’s strategy to enhance industry training by providing technology-enabled experiential learning.
Mr. Hussain Al Hussaini, NBB General Manager – Treasury & International Banking Group, presented the cheque to BIBF Director Solveig Nicklos in the presence of representatives from both organisations.
The dealing room is unique to the region in using technology-enabled experiential learning, thus allowing students to learn about trading stocks and bonds in a real environment. The facility includes 22 fully-equipped trading stations that feature market tools linked with Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters Eikon.
