The ranking reflects QIB’s successful growth strategy, cautious financing policies, and its disciplined approach to risk management. Over the past few years, QIB’s management has been working on a transformation program to build a long-term competitive advantage by introducing new products and services, improving customer service levels, developing internal efficiencies, upgrading the Bank’s risk management framework, and migrating to new technology platforms that allow the Bank to better serve its customers.

“Recognition from a trusted source like Global Finance is a testament to the success of our strategy which places the financial safety of our customers first while ensuring the application of a well-thought, conservative risk management plan to safeguard the Bank’s and our customers’ interests. We are proud to be active contributors to Qatar’s growing financial sector and to the country’s National Vision 2030,” said Bassel Gamal, QIB’s Group CEO.
