Jabar has spent his entire 33 years working life in the banking industry. His experience includes bank/branch management, business development, retail and consumer banking, commercial banking, treasury and audit. Before joining Al-Tayseer, Jabar was with a GCC based Islamic bank in Malaysia where he joined as one of the pioneers when the bank opened for business in 2005. He was entrusted to grow the commercial banking business of the bank which by 2009 accounted for a significant percentage of the bank’s portfolio.

Upon graduation in 1977, Jabar joined HSBC Bank Malaysia as a management trainee. During his long career with HSBC he had been exposed to different aspects of the bank’s operations but with heavy bias towards credit / lending. He had a five year stint in Treasury and two years in Audit. He was also entrusted to manage three of the bank’s large branches and this gave him a wide exposure to retail and consumer banking. He was Head of SME, Investment and Insurance prior to moving to Islamic banking.

Jabar holds a Bachelor of Arts (Economics) from University of Malaya.
