JIB continues to maintain dominance

Despite the entry of an increased number of Gulf Cooperation Council-based Islamic banks, including Al-Rajhi Bank and Dubai Islamic Bank, in the domestic Islamic banking market, Jordan Islamic Bank (JIB) continues to control a substantial share of Shariah-compliant financing and deposits in Jordan.
