pointing out that the key indicators of the bank’s activities explain clearly the advanced position , at which the bank occupies it now compared with all Iraqi private banks in terms of the size of the financial position which is more than 1,750 trillion dinars for the  bank,

or profits got by shareholders annually resulting from cash and promissory development activity , facilities and the provision of banking services at the highest levels in terms of development and used accounting systems , which  is based on the upgrading of advanced banks forming a fixed  target in the management of the bank, and giving  evidence of efforts  done by the executive staffs to achieve objectives.

According to the chairman’ concept, the north bank was keen to explore the prospects for the future  by playing a vital role in the development of the national economy and by contributing  in  the financing of the business and investment sectors and other projects related to infrastructure,North Bank Arabic Writing

stressing that the bank ,despite its  recent presence in the banking arena, It  was putting in its  goals formulating a new role to contribute  in the development process, and attracting  the financial cadres and applying the non-traditional policies which help to overcome the difficulties,  It  is something which helped the bank to be ranked first, in terms of results and data in the Iraqi banking sector.

This makes it significant institutional strength in the field of modern banking. Al Jaff says that  the important indicators for the course of the bank were coincided with a decision taken  earlier in the year 2012, It was to increase the bank’s capital from 175 to 210 billion dinars, after capitalization of profits amounting to 35 billion dinars achieved in the year 2011 Preparing  to reach the desired end  in capital which is  250 billion dinars in 30/06/2013.
