History[edit]

Bank Alfalah Limited was launched on June 21, 1997 as a public limited company under the Companies Ordinance 1984. The bank commenced its operations on November 1, 1997. The bank introduced commercial banking and related services as defined in the Banking companies ordinance, 1962. Bank Alfalah is the 6th largest bank of Pakistan with 576 branches.

After a few years, the bank introduced its new identity of H.C.E.B after the privatization in 1997. The management of the bank had implemented strategies and policies so the bank would become a major player in the market. With a partnership with the Abu Dhabi Group the position of the bank became stronger which allowed the bank to invest more in technology to increase its range of products and services.[citation needed]
