QNB Group’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Ahmed Al-Kuwari stated:

“This transaction is a breakthrough in QNB’s vision to becoming a Middle Eastern and African Icon by 2017. Our strategy is to focus on high-growth markets where we see a competitive advantage. Turkey, with its significant market size, population, growth track record, strong economic and banking sector and strategic location as a gateway between Europe, Asia and Africa, represents such a market. We are very excited to be part of Turkey’s and Finansbank’s future development and further enhancing the overall connectivity with international markets and bring Finansbank to the next level as part of the QNB Group.”
