Doha Bank has opened a new state-of-the-art branch in Al Gharafa, which will serve both corporate and retail banking customers, offering a full spectrum of banking solutions, including account services, corporate banking services, and exclusive financial solutions to high net worth (HNW) customers.
In addition, customers banking at the new branch will have access to a comprehensive range of digital banking solutions offered by Doha Bank, including the DBank Mobile service and Apple Watch banking, in line with its endeavour to provide an “omni-channel customer experience” designed to provide access to Doha Bank services globally anytime.
The official opening of the new branch was led by Doha Bank chairman Sheikh Fahad bin Mohamed bin Jabor al-Thani, and was joined by members of Doha Bank’s executive team led by Doha Bank CEO Dr R Seetharaman and other senior bank officials.
Sheikh Fahad said: “I would like to thank our customers for entrusting their financial well-being through our various products and services. Gharafa is a centre of many ongoing development projects, which will reflect positively on the performance of the banking industry in Qatar. Doha Bank is keen on building a strategic network across Qatar considering the banking needs of customers within the scope of the changing market dynamics.”
At the forefront of the Al Gharafa branch operations, Al Riyada premium banking services will offer bespoke solutions, full range of account services, as well as advanced financial counsel, including loans and investment solutions for Doha Bank’s high net worth customers both individual and corporate.
Seetharaman added: “We are proud to announce yet another addition to our network midst of fierce competition in the market and the tough economic climate and the challenges and difficulties faced by capital markets worldwide. Qatar continues to grow at a steady pace across diverse sectors and this has created greater demand for loans and more sophisticated financial services.
“Our new branch will offer a full suite of banking products that cater to the needs of corporate, SME, and individual customers in and around Al Gharafa, and provide customers with the highest quality of service developing regions of the country.”
He said Doha Bank’s Tatweer solution for SMEs provides a wide range of banking and financial services to help SMEs grow beyond their potential. With Tatweer SME, Seetharaman said customers can secure financing for operational needs, use an array of products and services to drive growth and improve efficiency, and bank without leaving their place of business.
The bank’s specialised staff provides efficient handling combined with fast-track approval and processing, making Tatweer the one-stop-shop solution for business growth and expansion, he said.
Seetharaman added: “Doha Bank has, over the years, strived to exemplify the highest level of customer service, while also focusing on innovation in delivering financial services to our customers and clients. Today, with full branches in India, Kuwait, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi, supported by 12 international representative offices, Doha Bank is truly positioned as a multinational GCC-based bank with stakeholders across the region and internationally.”
The branch will remain open six days a week from 7:30am to 1pm from Saturday to Thursday, and will offer loans, deposits, and a range of specialised services covering personal banking, corporate banking, investment banking, asset management, and much more. The bank is also expanding its international footprint and currently has operations in 15 countries worldwide.
