Moreover, Moody's has elevated the bank's basic credit ratings (BCA) and adjusted BCA from ba1 to baa3, maintaining a stable outlook for issuers' ratings in the long term. These upgraded ratings not only underscore Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank's pivotal role within the UAE's banking sector but also reflect the government's steadfast commitment to continually bolstering and backing local banks and institutions.

In essence, the newfound ratings by Moody's serve as a validation of Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank's strong financial performance and its unwavering dedication to delivering value to stakeholders while navigating the dynamic landscape of the banking industry.
