AMMAN — Société Générale de Banque – Jordanie (SGBJ) has recently signed an agreement with First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) to acquire its National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD) Jordan business operations, according to an SGBJ statement. 

The deal has been approved by the Central Bank of Jordan, the statement said, adding that the deal covers the transfer of employees and relevant suppliers’ contracts.
