Noor Bank (previously Noor Islamic Bank or Al Noor Islamic Bank, but not usually Nour Bank) opened its doors for business on 02 January 2008 with 10 branches throughout the UAE - 1 in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, 6 in Dubai, and 2 in Sharjah. None in Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, or Umm Al Quwain at the time of opening but NIB plan to open 10 more branches during 2008 in the UAE, and open more branches, or buy other banks, in the region. NIB was first announced in December 2007 and has about $1 billion of capital (AED 3.7 billion).

NIB intend to be the leading or largest (or both) Islamic Bank in the world by 2013. They're a little way behind Dubai Islamic Bank, which has been around since 1975 and at the end of 2007 had almost 50 branches, about AED 80 billion of assets, and close to AED 10 billion of capital. Noor Islamic Bank is 25% owned by Dubai Group, a subsidiary of Dubai Holding, and 25% owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai.

Noor Bank rebranding and renaming

07 Jan 2014 - Noor Islamic Bank dropped the word Islamic from its name and rebranded itself as Noor Bank, however it remains an Islamic bank. Unknown if it wants to be less obvious about being an Islamic bank or if there was a different reason for changing its name.
