Corporate Profile

Eskan Bank (“EB” or the “Bank”) was established in 1979, with a unique social role to provide subsidized mortgages for low-to-middle income citizens of the Kingdom of Bahrain, as well as engage in community-related property development activities and facilities management.

The Government of Bahrain is the sole owner of the Bank which acts as the Ministry of Housing’s strategic partner and financial advisor. Both work together towards the continuous development of sustainable, best industry practice social housing programs and solutions that facilitate Bahraini citizens access to a quality family home in a safe community, strengthen the fabric of our society, and drive innovation and economic growth.

The Bank, over time, has evolved to become a facilitator that connects financiers, landlords, developers and homebuyers in an innovative and comprehensive ecosystem that is constantly being optimized to ensure a housing solution that is a global benchmark.

Today the Bank is contributing more than ever to the social housing agenda. As we move forward, we will remain focused on optimizing Government resources while exploring smarter business models that better support stakeholders, meet the housing needs of our citizens, and enrich lives.
