One of the youngest banks in Qatar, Barwa Bank has adopted a new identity from now as the bank rebranded itself to be called Dukhan Bank. 

Along with the rebranding activity, the bank has now shifted its focus on setting up a fully digital infrastructure to attain operational efficiency and profitability, as well as to offer a simple, secure, and seamless banking experience for its clients.

Backed by product and service innovations, the brand will also now try to provide solutions to its customers which will empower them to resolve their everyday problems with a primary focus on the financial present rather than the far-fetched future.

The bank chose the name “Dukhan” which represents the City of Dukhan in Western Qatar where the country first discovered a substantial oil reserve, a significant milestone in the country’s economic history.

“We are glad to witness the birth of this new emblem and journey. Best wishes to our brothers in the Board of Directors, the Executive Management as well as the depositors and shareholders. We wish for the bank prosperity and progress at these particular times that are filled with challenges in the banking and economical fields.”

As the logo signifies, the new identity, Dukhan Bank is a powerful alliance between those who built Qatar’s banking industry and those who positively challenged it.

Recently, Barwa Bank and IBQ went through a legal merger making it the first-ever merger in Qatar’s history which brought two of the leading and most dynamic financial institutions under one name, creating a powerful Shariah-compliant financial institution backed by robust liquidity and solvency levels.
