Welcome to Melli Bank plc

Melli Bank plc is a UK incorporated bank, licensed and authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority and conforms to all UK accounting standards and disclosure requirements. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank Melli Iran, the largest bank in Iran which had a presence in London since 1967. Melli Bank plc acquired the assets of these branches upon commencement of its operations in January 2002.

Whilst retaining operational autonomy, flexibility and adaptability to respond to the rapidly changing customer demand and the challenges of a highly competitive and innovative banking market under direction of its independent Board, the Bank continues to benefit from the extensive infrastructure and widespread network of domestic and international branches owned by its parent in addition to access through its privileged position as a leading international bank in the economic and financial landscape of Iran.

The Bank opened its first overseas branch in Hong Kong in April 2006 to cater to a client market in the Far East with strong trade links with the Iranian market.

The Bank offers a diversified portfolio of products and services to cater to the varying needs of its customers. The needs of the export business market are typically based around Letters of Credit and the Bank provides all services in this regard i.e. advising, their confirmation, negotiation and payment and acts as a reimbursing bank for other banks. The Bank additionally offers Letter of Credit and Bill discounting services as well as issuing Bonds and Guarantees.

The more complex needs of the Bank's large corporate clients are met by arranging syndicated and bilateral loans and specialist financing such as capital asset financing by way of aviation and shipping loans.

The Bank also offers a range of foreign currency and trade related services including various currency accounts.
