Moody's Affirms Barwa Bank's Credit Rating at (A2/prime-1) With a Stable Outlook

Doha, Qatar – July, 27 2020:  Barwa bank announced that Moody’s, the global credit rating agency, has affirmed its long-term credit rating at “A2/Prime-1”, with a stable outlook.

This rating encourages us to continue our expansion plans that meet the aspirations of our customers and shareholders and promote the Group’s position locally and regionally.”


Commenting on the achievement, Mr. Khalid Al-Subeai, Group Chief Executive Officer of Barwa Bank, stated:
“The A2/Prime-1 rating from Moody's reaffirms the integrity of our financial position, the quality of our assets and our key role in developing the Islamic banking sector in Qatar. After completing the first merger in the Qatari banking sector in April 2019, Barwa Bank continues moving forward to develop its assets in a sustainable manner. We seek to increase our market share by exploring investment opportunities that meet our aspirations for future growth and cement our position as a leading financial institution. Additionally, we aim to inspire the confidence of our customers and strengthen the Islamic banking sector as a whole.”
'This strong rating exemplifies our commitment to achieving added-value for our customers and shareholders, offering the best financial solutions and advanced banking services. It is the result of hard work, and continuous efforts to achieving our goal of becoming the best choice for Islamic banking customers in the State of Qatar.', he added.


Barwa Bank provides a full range of banking services including retail, corporate, commercial, and private banking, real estate finance, structured finance, investments, and asset management.
