"BTMU has an extensive global network with strong economic connections to the Middle East," said BFHHC chief development and co-ordination officer Eric Fotiadis.
"Their decision to relocate to BFH not only enriches the financial environment at BFH but it simultaneously emphasises the high esteem to which the Financial Centre is held internationally as a world-class environment for international finance.
"We are confident that BTMU will find our advanced establishment and modern systems to be the ideal launch pad for its operations in Bahrain and the wider Middle East."
"Our decision to position ourselves at this prestigious location confirms our ambitions to ensure our extensive selection of financial products and services are readily available to businesses, governments across the region," said BTMU regional head for the Middle East Chu Sakata.
"We are certainly looking forward to a long and productive relationship with BFH."
