Barclays expat clients affected by the sale of their business to ADIB urged to take immediate action
“it is critical that Barclays clients in the UAE decide now whether they wish their current accounts, loans and investments to be moved to Abu Dhabi’s Islamic Bank"
Barclays customers who decide to go with Barclays’ decision to move their accounts to ADIB will have to switch any financial products they hold to comply with ADIB’s strict rules on Islamic finance, the best known feature of which being the prohibition on interest.
Sam Instone also commented that “if a Barclays client is happy with the move of their account to ADIB, we would still strongly encourage clients with high asset values to consider using an independent wealth manager who understands the expat market with offshore banking facilities.”
