Moving to a new country can be a rather daunting experience, which is why we’ve prepared this straightforward and informative guide to Qatar, and to some of the financial services we can offer you, to help smooth out the stresses of relocating. It covers everything from discovering the country’s culture, lifestyle, banking,roads and transport system, to outlining the local real estate market and the types of properties to rent or buy. Over the past few years, Qatar has been experiencing a rebirth. Its beauty, culture, people and natural gas reserves have rejuvenated Qatar, making it an even more intriguing place in which to live. Few countries have witnessed so much change in such a small space of time.
As Qatar’s fastest growing bank, it’s a change we welcome. Almost overnight, Barwa Bank has become a major financial services provider in Qatar and the GCC region. Our customer base, branch and ATM network continues to blossom. It’s hardly surprising then that Banker Middle East and Arabian Business have recently awarded us for Fastest Growing Bank, Fastest Growing Bank in Qatar, Best Institutional Integration (for our Al Yusr acquisition), Best Insurance Product, Best CSR award, Best Bank Award, Best Branch Design and Best Premium Islamic Card for a Platinum Credit Card.
As Head of Retail Banking, I am proud to be able to offer you a full range of 100% Shari’ah compliant financial products and services to help you start your new life in Qatar. I wish you every success and happiness in Qatar, and once again, welcome.
Hussain Al Abdulla
