TFI took home the Legal Team of the Year — Investment Banking accolade during the IAIR Awards 2015.

The First Investor (TFI), the investment banking division of the Barwa Bank Group, was recognised at the 19th edition of the IAIR Awards 2015 for its legal expertise and excellence. 
TFI took home the Legal Team of the Year — Investment Banking accolade, owing to its crossover role in driving forward all core areas of Barwa Bank Group’s business, as well as to its service and support excellence vis-à-vis clients, regulators, and shareholders. 
Also, TFI team ranked among a select group of top tier institutions and individuals in the regional corporate, legal, forex, and banking fields.
The award ceremony capped the IAIR’s 7th CEO Summit, a knowledge exchange platform between top CEOs, executives, and companies. Held this year under the theme “Leadership: Skills and Visions for Growth,” the summit gave way to a slew of discussions and debates around the skills and challenges for top-ranking company leaders, as well as the role of the Middle East in the global economy growth.
TFI acting CEO Youssef al-Obaidan said: “This year’s CEO Summit theme comes in light of a crucial transition for the investment banking industry where disciplines, business models, and best practices are being continuously reshaped and redefined. 
“Financial institutions no longer work in departmental siloes and this translates into a dire need to continuously evolve the cross-functional capacity of each pillar discipline underpinning their growth and strategy forward. Our legal team has proactively led efforts on this front, constantly and strategically expanding the scope of its services to anticipate risks, trends, and dynamics that would play into our business in the future. He added: “With this accolade from the IAIR Awards, it is being duly-recognised for both its internal and external legal, regulatory, reputational, and transactional expertise but also for the integrity and transparency it has committed to as guiding values for its role.” 
Held with the patronage of the European Commission and the Expo 2015 organisers, the IAIR Awards is a global roadshow that is focused on global economy and sustainability across green economy, alternative investments, business opportunities, global corporate excellence, foreign exchange, ETFs and Commodities, Law, Asset Management, Family Office and wealth management, among other areas. 
The next global CEO Summit & Awards will be held on March 11 in Hong Kong.
