During the year, Barwa Bank's elevated profile gained significant recognition both domestically and regionally, a development reflected in both customer acquisition volumes and a number of prestigious industry awards. A highlight was winning the Islamic Business and Finance Awards' "Best Bank" title



The bank continued to build the infrastructure that supports its strategic growth plans, including continuing investment in Information Technology and premises, with two new prestigious locations due to open during the first half of 2014.



Barwa Bank achieved a 25 percent Qatarisation at the group level. The bank continued to attract prominent Qatari banking professionals in a number of key leadership roles driving and executing the growth strategy.
