Our Story

We’ve been through it all with Lebanon.

We are turning 100 soon. Yes, we are one of the oldest banks in Lebanon, and the third to be established in the country since 1929 – even prior to its independence.

Yes. Banque Misr Liban is a universal bank with a solid legacy and a modern outlook.
It offers a full range of corporate, commercial and retail services, and also provides private banking services per the latest banking techniques and the most discerning expertise.

Our ATM spread and range of online services is supported by our synergies with
Banque Misr (Egypt) and BML’s regional network. And today, we are introducing a whole new structure, with a management that is reinterpreting our services and branch network across the Lebanese cities and regions.

We are part of this country’s history and part of its people. And today, more than ever, we are committed to social responsibility, empowerment, and change.
Change that begins with ourselves, and extends to the community around us.

“Despite the various economic challenges, BML has managed to preserve a good presence on the Lebanese market. Its customer base includes a wide cross section of the retail banking market, blue chip institutional clients, and small & medium-sized enterprises.

BML’s business and market reach has been allied with the highest standards of corporate governance, careful adherence to all regulatory requirements, strict risk management guidelines, and most importantly, a strong balance sheet.

And this year, it pleases me to announce that BML is granting full scholarships to 10 students from random universities across Lebanon, to help them pursue their postgraduate studies at reputed universities abroad.

Lebanese youth is the country’s greatest asset. They lead the change we want to see in this beautiful country.”

A Bank with Values

BML believes in an established set of values that aim to give the customer a different ‘TASTE’ of banking.

We value the trust of our customers and stakeholders and work hard to earn it by being totally transparent in all actions and policies that may have any bearing on them.

We are accountable to our customers, stakeholders, co-workers, the regulatory authorities and the community in all that we do; and we strive to do it well.

We are committed to supporting our community in all its causes and concerns, and to working with it to realize its social, environmental and economic needs.

We believe that the basis for success is a great team; and we continue to develop and train a knowledgeable, efficient and strong team.

We are building a better bank day by day and improving our skills and capabilities to provide the best experience to our customers, and help them meet their banking requirements and achieve their goals in a simple, clear and personal manner. We listen to our customers.

A Bank with A Mission and A Vision

As a Lebanese commercial bank and subsidiary of Banque Misr – a leading Egyptian bank – we are dedicated to providing quality financial services to our customers. We aim to be the preferred bank of our customers and to become a leading regional bank.
