QNB Group, the financial institution in Qatar and the MENA region, has achieved an increase in the value of its brand to $1.31bn and was ranked 120 on the list of the world's top 500 banking brands in 2013, according to an annual survey carried out by "Brand Finance" and published by "The Banker" magazine, an affiliate to the widely circulated "Financial Times" newspaper.
The ranking revealed that out of five MENA banking brands on the list, only QNB Group's brand had achieved gains in its value. QNB's brand value rose to $1.31bn in 2013, up from $1.26bn in 2012.
The value assessment process of banking brands on Brand Finance's ranking depends on strict standards, taking into account the bank's size, geographical presence, global and regional reputation, and its brand's classification. QNB Group's brand is classified as an AA brand.
