A smarter way to manage your money. Seamless. Digital. Personalised.

Banking that reflects you


We knew banking needed to change. But we didn’t know exactly how.
So we asked you, Bahrain. You told us what you want and need – and what you don't like.
We listened, we learned, we understood.
We made ila.
  • "I don’t want to visit a branch to open a bank account, I want to do it when and where it suits me"
  • “I work during branch opening hours, but I need a bank that’s available when I am”
  • “I want to earn interest on my balance, without losing access to my money”

You’re our top priority


At ila, we care about the things that matter to you – from dining out with friends to saving up to buy a house.
We think banking should help you to do these things – to live the life you want, but first it needs to change. To be easier, simpler…smarter.
So, we’re bringing banking into your world – a world that is fast, connected and always online, with the things you need never more than a swipe away.
