EN Bank, also known as Eghtesad Novin Bank (Persian: بانک اقتصاد نوین, Bank Eqtesad Novin, lit. "Modern Economy Bank") is the Islamic Republic of Iran's first private bank[citation needed] established by the Eghtesad Family offering retail, commercial and investment banking services in Iran. The company was established in 2000 as a part of the government's privatization of the banking system.[1]

While established in Tehran, the bank operates throughout the nation with 5,317 employees, 1,200 ATMs and 310 branches across the Persian Gulf Region.[2]

EN Bank is Iran's first private bank[citation needed],.[1] listed under the Tehran Stock Exchange and was listed as one of Iran's top 200 companies.[3] However, it was taken down from Tehran Stock Exchange late 2015 as it was fully privatized by the Eghtesad Family. The bank was also awarded Euromoney magazine's best bank of Iran in 2010.[4]

In addition to retail, corporate, international, and commercial banking, the company offers savings and current accounts, loans, cards, and safe deposit boxes; merchant, cash management, and financing services; Internet, telephone, mobile, and SMS banking; and foreign exchange, currency accounts, trade finance, fund transfer, and wire services. EN Bank also provides utility bill payment service; and complementary financial services, ranging from securities trading to insurance.[5] In 2015, EN Bank, with 600 million euros of assets under management (AUM), was in talks with a number of German banks to start a mutual fund of 25 million euros.[6]
