Qatar International Islamic Bank (QIIB) has received the ‘Excellence Award’ at the UK-based Global Islamic Finance Awards (GIFA) for its product in the corporate and business credit cards segment.

QIIB was given the award in respect of the value addition it offers to the target group of customers as well as the bank’s leading role in the domain of Islamic banking. The Qatari bank was given the “coveted” award from a “pool of strong contenders” as part of the GIFA committee honoring leading financial institutions for their quality customer-centric services and products in the Islamic banking sector.

Commenting on the award, the committee highlighted that the credit cards for businesses and companies launched by QIIB constituted a qualitative addition and were an appropriate response to customer requirements. These are also in line with the rapid development of credit card payments on a global scale.

“Getting appreciation and positive feedback from our customers and observers and other experts, makes us happy and motivates us to do more and aspire for more achievements. On this occasion, however, we wish to emphasize that the successes we are attaining, and the appreciation we are receiving, are mainly due to the Qatari economy, which provides us the appropriate conditions for development and growth. They also reflect on our attaining goals that have been set as part of our plans and strategies.”

“While we thank the GIFA committee for giving us this recognition, we actually feel a great sense of responsibility as an Islamic financial institution tasked with providing solid contributions for the development of Islamic banking services and products in both the retail and corporate segments,” Dr. al-Shaibei added.

QIIB aims to continue its efforts to offer the latest products and services to its customers of various categories while keeping pace with the latest developments in global banking technology in order to maintain the bank’s position.
