Net Commission Income has been the primary driver behind profitability with incremental Net Commission Income contributing 56% of the incremental total income in contrast with a contribution of just 33% in the previous year. Both Net Commission Income and Non-Commission Income exhibited robust growth with the former surging 35%YoY in 2007 and at a 2003-2007 CAGR of 56% while the latter grew 63%YoY in 2007 and at a 2003-2007 CAGR of 66%.

Key areas of potential growth for the bank are its international operations, the high-yielding retail & commercial segment and the personal loans sub-segment. Furthermore, a great chunk of advisory and fee income from mega infrastructure projects being undertaken in Abu Dhabi may fall in ADIB's lap given its affiliation with the Government of Abu Dhabi and the Abu Dhabi Investment Council.
ADIB is expected to register a 50%YoY profit growth in 2008 while the same is expected to rise at a 2007-2011 CAGR of 29%. Net Commission Income and Non-Commission Income is forecast to maintain a growth trajectory (2007-2011 CAGR) of 22% and 25% respectively. Since spreads are anticipated to taper-off slightly till 2009 and then onwards increase, the growth in the bottom-line as per our assumptions, will follow a similar path. As with other banks, volumetric growth is anticipated to be the 'key' word with Financing & Investing assets forecast to grow at a 4-yr (2007-2011) CAGR of 21%.
