International Bank of Qatar (ibq) announced today the launching of its Airport Road corporate branch. Through this new initiative ibq will cater for all corporate clients’ needs by providing a full range of tailored corporate banking solutions in one convenient location. This initiative is in line with ibq’s commitment to provide the highest level of service to its clients across all segments, and particularly ibq corporate clients.

The Airport Road branch is fully equipped and specialised to provide the broadest suite of corporate banking solutions specifically tailored to the needs of ibq’s corporate clients including loans, trade finance, treasury, and cash management.  

Explaining the rationale behind this initiative, Jabra Ghandour, Managing Director of ibq, said: “At ibq, we continuously work to enhance our service quality and provide a unique, smooth and fully integrated client experience. Our corporate clients will now be able to further benefit from a full range of services at a single location that is fully dedicated to meet all their needs.”


The decision to dedicate a branch exclusively for corporate clients is a natural consequence of ibq’s relentless commitment towards customer service, as demonstrated by the recent extension of its working hours for consumer clients at its Main Branch. This branch is now open from 7:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. from Sunday to Wednesday, and from 7:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Thursdays.

Commenting on the initiative, Andrew Ball, Head of Retail Banking at ibq, said: “This move is part of a carefully planned initiative aimed at offering both our retail and corporate clients the highest level and efficiency of service. We are confident that our customers will realise its benefits and take full advantage of it.” Both of these recent enhancements to ibq’s distribution are part of a broader and strategic plan to extend its network across Qatar.
