Ahlibank celebrates opening renovated Al Markhiya branch

The Al Markhiya branch is now officially open for banking business.

Ahlibank is now welcoming customers to its ‘new look’ branch in Al Markhiya.

The branch features the bank’s new brand identity with modern technology including interactive touch screens and tablets designed to enhance the customer experience.

This is the third branch opening in Ahlibank’s redesign programme aimed at providing the most personal banking experience at the heart of the Qatar community.

The branch features an exclusive Premium Banking Lounge, with two dedicated Relationship Managers serving as a single point of contact for Premium Banking customers’ account and investment management needs.

This service allows Premium Banking customers to conduct their transactions in a high quality and confidential environment.

Recent and further branch openings and the new brand identity mark a series of planned developments for Ahlibank with continuing investment in branch modernisation and technology.
Ahlibank’s refreshed brand identity is inspired by Qatar’s past icon of the oyster shell.

Just as the oyster shell protects and nurtures its treasure over time, Ahlibank seeks to adapt the same culture to its customers’ assets and likewise make them grow. This new look will be rolled-out across the entire branch network and is also reflected in digital advancements such as the Ahlibank website and Mobile Banking App.

Andrew McKechnie, Deputy CEO, Retail said, “Ahlibank is dedicated to providing the best level of service at convenient locations around Qatar. To achieve this we have invested in the best people, best technology and the product range. To meet our aim of bringing tomorrow’s banking to Qatar, today, we are constantly upgrading our facilities bringing new and exciting products to our customers. This latest branch refurbishment reaffirms this commitment.”

McKechnie continues: We are here to help people with their banking needs and make life easier, wherever you are in Qatar you are not far from one of Ahlibank’s 16 branches. We have had a branch in Al Markhiya since 1999 and look forward to providing leading banking services here for many years to come.”

Hassan Alfrangi, Head of Retail Services added, “We are a community bank and our redesigned branch network will remain core to what we offer. We are proud to serve this historical centre of culture in Doha providing our customers in Al Markhiya with modern and convenient banking services. Our commitment to Qatar, supporting its residents and businesses, is at the heart of all we do, whether it is through our local branch network, online banking or CSR programmes.”

The Al Markhiya branch is now officially open for banking business.
