Towards a better
annual report

When you’ve been doing a good annual report for a while and someone suggests improving it, that can be a cat-among-the-pigeons moment… or a catalyst on your journey towards a better annual report.

The stepping stones to an improved annual report – research, learning, and practice – prompt you to explore the types of information your key stakeholder groups are keen to know about while also helping you to look at the best ways of communicating such information to them in a cohesive and holistic manner.

An open mind and a can-do attitude will take you (and your annual report) a long way.

Following the global financial crisis, Ithmaar Bank transformed from an investment bank into an Islamic bank in 2010. "Purpose", the Bank’s Annual Report 2012 is the third report in a trilogy that chronicled the Bank’s story of transformation. Similar to the reports that preceded it, the 2012 report is presented in a candid manner and captures the new direction in which the Bank is "purposefully" headed. The theme and surreal visual communications are an integral part of the report, and they blend seamlessly with the writing.
