Manama, Bahrain – 10 November 2015: Securities & Investment Company (SICO), licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain as a conventional wholesale bank, announced today its financial results for the third quarter of 2015 and the first nine months of the year.
Net profit for the nine months ended 30 September 2015 was BD 2.3 million compared with BD 6.8 million for the corresponding period in 2014, a decrease of 66 per cent mainly due to the volatility in regional and global markets, impacting in particular SICO’s proprietary book performance during the third quarter this year compared to the markets strong performance for the same period of last year.
