What happens when you put the NBK & Boubyan Bank Together? bye bye KFH

I read great financial news today; the National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) has acquired about 27 33% of Boubyan Bank (BB) in a deal with Commercial Bank of Kuwait (CBK), making the NBK enter the world of Islamic financing.

No question I’m moving to BB as soon as it’s official. Finally this puts an end to all the rumors.
