Barwa Bank wins top Islamic banking awards
Doha, December 18, 2013
Qatar-based Barwa Bank Group has been named “Best Bank” and “Best Premium Bank” globally, as well as “Best Domestic Commercial Bank” in Qatar at the Islamic Business & Finance Awards 2013.
These awards were established by CPI Financial in 2005 to recognise the best performing institutions in a variety of regions where Islamic finance is either already developed or is rapidly expanding.
“We are honoured to be acknowledged with these awards from CPI Finance and are delighted that our commitment to growth and to building an innovative and customer focused Shari’ah compliant bank has been recognised, said Steve Troop, CEO, Barwa Bank at the awards ceremony held recently at Jumeirah Emirates Hotel in Dubai.
Troop went on to say that he was especially pleased to receive the “Best Bank” award in that Barwa Bank aims to challenge the widespread misconception that Islamic finance involves an implicit trade-off between, on the one hand, Shari’ah compliance and on the other, sophistication and service excellence.
“We aim to deliver on both through providing innovative products and service standards that meet customer need and expectations. We may not be the largest but we want to be the best and the most recommended,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
