Qatar Islamic Bank has received two awards from Global Finance for being the ‘Best Islamic financial institution’ in the GCC and Qatar, for 2017. The awards were received by QIB Group CEO Bassel Gamal at an awards ceremony held on the sidelines of the annual meetings of the IMF and the World Bank, held in Washington.
These awards recognise the significant progress QIB has made during the last years in establishing itself as a leading banking institution in the GCC while strengthening its leadership in Qatar, its home market. On the awards, Gamal said, “Recognition from prestigious entities such as Global Finance, which recognised us for the first time as the Best Islamic Bank in GCC, is a real testament to QIB’s leading position in the region. Our commitment to meet our shareholders’ and customers’ expectations is what drives our efforts to continuously offer tailor-made Shariah-compliant products and services and high quality service to all our customer segments — individuals, government entities, large corporates and SMEs.”
“This continual success of our bank is a result of the wise leadership of our Board of Directors, the focused implementation of our business strategy and the efficiency and hard work of all our employees.” QIB has demonstrated steady financial growth for the past four years and has been setting a benchmark for Islamic banks in the region with its embrace of cutting-edge banking technologies, and its customer-centric approach to both its product offering and the overall banking experience offered through its renovated branch network and new digital channels.
