As part of its ongoing commitment to nationwide, industry-level knowledge exchange platforms for the financial industry, Al Khaliji Commercial Bank PQSC (al khaliji) recently sponsored the ’10th annual Investor Relations Conference’ as an Executive Partner – the highest level of sponsorship for the conference.
Hosted by Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE), the conference was held at City Centre Rotana Doha. Gathering all QSE listed companies and senior management cadres, the day-long event featured a series of insightful discussions and debates around the evolution, role and best practices of the investor relations discipline in a rapidly changing, ubiquitously connected world.
Commenting on the bank’s participation in the conference, al khaliji Group CEO Fahad Al Khalifa, said that al khaliji, as Qatar next generation bank, has been on the forefront of adopting the latest best practices. This includes transparency to shareholders and other stakeholders by providing them best in class investor information.
As part of this philosophy, we have continued to support initiatives such as the Investor Relations conference that provides an opportunity to practioners and participants to exchange knowledge, adopt best practices and further strengthen the connection between public companies and their stakeholders.
The trust of our investors is paramount to pivoting our business and industry to broader horizons, as we continue to drive our National Vision 2030 ambitions toward a diversified economy and prosperous society. I congratulate the team at Qatar Exchange for hosting the 10th conference and wish them success in all their initiatives.’
Group CFO Shabbir Barkat Ali added that they are proud to be partaking in the flagship event and knowledge-exchange platform, more so at a time when the financial landscape and ecosystem are constantly disrupted and challenged at a pace far beyond the expectations of policymakers, decision-makers and regulators.
Today, it has become more imperative for us to proactively drive and maintain open lines of communication with our stakeholders and shareholders. As our landscape grows ever more complex, transparency, accountability and trust remain the central pillars of our long-term relationships with our investors.’
QSE CEO Rashid Al Mansoori opened the conference with an introductory speech, followed by several talks and panel discussions on communications, relationship management and ecosystem dynamics for investor relations discipline in Qatar and beyond. The conference boasted an impressive speaker and panel line-up from leading Qatari companies.
