Thank you for your interest in Bank of Palestine.In 1960, BOP was established as a small retail bank principally serving small businesses. We have steadily grown to become Palestine's largest financial services network offering full personal & business banking and more recently the first bank in the region to establish its own e-payment provider. As you will find in our 2013 report, we have been hard at work evolving our capabilities and strategies for growth management, and look forward to strenghtening our position as a bank of the future.
