Rabat – Bank Al Yousr, the participatory subsidiary of the BCP Group in partnership with Guidance Financial Group, opened its headquarters Thursday in Casablanca.

The participatory bank is the third of its kind to start its activities, after Bank Assafa, a subsidiary of Attijariwafa Bank, and Umnia Bank of CIH Bank.

“[Bank Al Yousr’s] first ambition is to contribute effectively to the success of participatory finance in Morocco,” the bank said in a statement.

“Bank Al Yousr will open on Thursday, August 3, 2017, its headquarters in Casablanca, on 162 Boulevard Anfa, to offer its clients an unprecedented banking experience in a modern and friendly setting,” the statement said.
