Qatar National Bank
QNB Group established in 1964, has steadily grown to become the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. QNB’s disciplined approach towards execution of its long-term strategy enabled the Group to achieve the One Trillion Qatar Riyal Total Asset. In 2016, QNB Group completed the acquisition of 99.88% stake in Turkey’s Finansbank A.Ş. (now known as QNB Finansbank), the 5th largest privately owned universal bank. In 2013, the Group successfully completed the acquisition of the second largest private bank in Egypt, QNB ALAHLI (QNBAA) with existing ownership of 95.00%
In 1966, QNB played a key role in financing the construction of the Doha International Airport. Today the group continues to play a leading role in financing massive infrastructure projects, including the new International Airport complex. In 1976, less than a decade after opening its first domestic branch, QNB embarked on its international expansion with the opening of a branch in London, followed by a second branch in Paris two years later. In 2005, it began implementing an intensive and ambitious international expansion plan, enabling it to extend its presence to more than 31 countries today, across a network of associates, subsidiaries, branches and representative offices.
