DOHA: Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) has been recognised as the Best Islamic Bank in Qatar for the year 2010 at the Islamic Finance News awards held recently in Dubai.
The Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of QIB, Ahmad Meshari said: “I believe it reflects our commitment to the customers and stakeholders to position ourselves as one of the leading Islamic Banks, not only amongst the financial institutions to be found in Qatar, but regionally and across the entire world.
“We have been developing Islamic banking in Qatar for over 28 years and this award reflects a strategy focused on offering first rate service at all our branches and affiliates which has been built up over the years under the supervision and guidance of the board of directors led by H E Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad bin Jabr Al Thani,” Meshari said.
The annual Islamic Finance news Best Bank Poll, established in 2006, recognises the best providers of Islamic financial services across a series of markets and sectors as voted by the readers of Islamic Finance news. Islamic finance issuers, investors, non-banking financial intermediaries and government bodies from around the world are invited to participate by casting their votes. A panel of experts from non-competing organisations then sieve through all submissions during the elimination process until just one transaction in each category remains and is thus awarded the winner of that category.
