Barwa Bank, Qatar's fastest growing Shari’ah-compliant banking service provider, will provide support to the Kawader programme, a leading educational and training initiative launched by the Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) in order to contribute to the development of human resources in Qatar and to keep pace with the rapid development of the financial sector in the state.

Barwa Bank is set to provide an annual financial contribution to the training programme designed by Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFCA) and QFBA to serve as an incubator for the next generation of business leaders and decision-makers in Qatar’s emerging financial services industry.

The bank’s contribution will be towards supporting the success and sustainability of Kawader and entails working with QFBA as a trusted learning and development partner.

Mr. Khalid Al-Subeai, Barwa Bank’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, said:

“As a responsible Qatari financial institution, we are delighted to be teaming up with QFBA and contributing to the formation of a prolific new generation of finance leaders in Qatar. Our cooperation with QFBA is testament to our unwavering commitment to the Qatar National Vision 2030 in supporting the development of human capital and resources."

QFBA Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Horr, added:

“We are pleased by the commitment shown by Barwa Bank towards supporting our flagship quality Qatarization initiative ‘Kawader’ and contributing to the growth of Qatar’s financial industry. QFBA believes that young talented Qataris are the most valuable asset of the country and we are eager to see the youth achieve their full potential. We are committed to support their growth and such contribution helps us grow the human capital to match the development seen in the country’s rapidly progressing financial sector.”

Kawader is a unique educational and training programme launched by the Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) in collaboration with the Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFC Authority) stemming out of their belief in the importance of investing in the future and developing young Qatari talents that will form the foundation for the next generation of business leaders and decision-makers in Qatar’s emerging financial services industry.  The programme seeks to provide participants with internationally-recognized certificates, as well as personal development skills and the necessary tools to achieve their growth and success in the financial services sector.

Anchored by its mission and values, Barwa Bank is committed to enhance its position as an integral part of the community and to remain an active player in the economic development of Qatar and the well-being of its people.
