Banque BEMO Saudi Fransi-SA (BBSF) was the first private bank to be established in Syria after almost 40 years of publically owned and managed banking sector and remains the pioneer in the private banking sector. Founded in 2004, BBSF adopted the names of its two founders, Banque Saudi Fransi (BSF) and Banque BEMO SAL, both of which offer extensive experiences in banking aspects.

BBSF has always been very keen on offering a full range of banking products and services and to cover all demands in Syria which helped build the name of BBSF as a key player in financing corporate, commercial, industrial and contracting activities, hence largely contributing to the development of those sectors and the overall economy of Syria.

Throughout the years BBSF has always been providing high level service to its clients through its diverse products and services, continuously staying up to date on current developments and striving to maintain its leadership in Syria's banking sector, with a strong focus on both Corporate and Retail banking.
