2013 marks the third consecutive year that QNB won both the ‘Best Bank in Qatar’ as well as the ‘Best Bank in the Middle East’ Awards.

A reception dinner for all award winners was held last night in Dubai on this occasion. The addition of these two awards to QNB’s ever growing collection demonstrates that the Bank is continuing on with its commitment to be the institution of choice for customers, employees, investors and suppliers alike.

The Banker Middle East Industry Awards recognise the best performing financial institutions in the MENA region. Over the years, QNB has steadily grown to be the largest bank in the region and is by far the leading financial institution in the country where it has a market share exceeding 45% of the banking sector assets. It is currently ranked as the most valuable brand in the MENA region due to its continued international expansion which is supported by strong growth locally, regionally and internationally.

The Banker relies on a detailed and accurate study of audited financial results across 14 measures to determine the Best Bank. Similar methods are also used to decide upon the fastest growing banks in each country. Using all of this data, The Banker Middle East then compiles a list of the Top 100 Banks.

Such awards highlight that QNB is becoming a powerhouse in its own right as it is unwavering in providing the best products and services to all of its customers. Not to mention that it is continuously seeking improvement through innovation and refinement of such offerings and services.
