The QFC-Asian Banker Leadership Achievement Awards

These awards are proudly supported by Qatar Financial Centre Authority, through its commitment to leadership in the financial services industry.
The regional leadership awards celebrate vision and achievement in four key areas that are crucial for annual recognition. They represent the core top-level values of financial services--leadership, governance, and transparency--that are needed on a constant basis in financial services and are awarded annually. In addition, there is another award that takes the previous criteria but focuses specifically on a particular group of individuals that provide the most powerful source of ideas and passion: women in the financial services industry.

These awards were presented by Dr Huan Guocang, CEO, Primus Pacific Partners and Desmond Holmes, managing director, Business Development, Banking and Asset Management, Qatar Financial Centre Authority.
