We are rethinking and rebuilding trade finance.
Our collaborative, simplified and data-first approach develops a thriving partner-ecosystem and innovative value propositions.

About Us

Anglo-Gulf Trade Bank was born through a collaborative venture between AGTB Holdings Limited, a Rowland family controlled company, and Mubadala Investment Company. Headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, AGTB is strategically located in the innovation-friendly environment of the Abu Dhabi Global Market and positioned to take advantage of the UAE’s role as a global trade hub. 

Envisioned as the world’s-first digital corporate trade bank, AGTB seeks to address the trade finance gap, left by incumbent trade banking models and FinTech platforms. In the context of today’s dynamic marketplace and globalization, corporate banking and trade finance are fundamentally broken. We are challenging the conventional mindset with a disruptive and transformative approach and aiming to facilitate trade-related financial and banking access to the many underserved corporate segments.

Our endeavour is to simplify and supply client-centric trade banking propositions by combining FinTech expertise, new technologies and the courage to reimagine corporate trade banking. The aim is to offer automated operational flexibility, data integration and advanced analytics in an accessible, real-time and transparent manner.

Institutional trade finance is fundamentally broken. AGTB challenges conventions with a disruptive and transformative approach.
