The bank’s understanding of the interconnected relationship between societal development and organisational success has driven it to participate in charity projects in accordance with QNB group values, goals, and principles.

It has adapted a market segmentation approach to structure products to meet diverse requirements — with a personalised approach and innovative payment solutions.
