QIB is leading in providing digital tools to give shareholders and investors access of the Bank’s activities and financial information in total transparency. Last year, QIB launched an Investors Relations (QIB IR) app for Android and iOS smartphones and revamped the IR section on its website to provide investors and all interested parties with more information about the Bank’s performance and operations.

The QIB IR App and dedicated webpages keep the investors updated on the latest financial developments related to share prices, stock performance, bank news, financial results and key financial reports. It provides an easy to use and intuitive user experience. It includes interactive financial screens enabling investors to see QIB’s historical share price and results while providing comparison with peers. QIB’s investors are global – therefore, the Bank’s IR app supports 17 languages and enable the display of share prices in different currencies as well. The app is one of several initiatives launched by QIB to enhance investor communications.

The QIB IR digital initiative was a significant step in QIB’s efforts to strengthen the relationship with the investors by raising awareness and being transparent. QIB continues to find innovative ways to further enhance the communications using state-of-the-art technology
