KUWAIT (Reuters) - The due diligence process on Kuwait Finance House’s move to buy Bahrain’s Ahli United Bank may take two to three months, KFH Chairman Hamad Abdulmohsen al-Marzouq said on Monday.

Kuwait Finance House is taking over the Bahraini lender in the first major cross-border bank merger deal in the Gulf region in recent years. The deal was formalized in January.
