Welcome to the website of the Qatar Financial Centre Authority ("QFC Authority").
Strategically located as an important platform for conducting business in the rapidly growing Middle East and North Africa region, the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) has firmly established itself as a thriving jurisdiction for global and regional financial services firms looking to capitalise on the opportunities offered by the region.
The QFC Authority is the commercial and strategic arm of the QFC. The QFC Authority also serves as a ‘think-tank’ for the State of Qatar on financial services, in addition to acting as an interface between participants who would like to use the QFC as a platform to expand within the region and the State of Qatar. Central to the commercial mandate is the development of three key hubs – Asset Management, Captive Insurance and (Re)insurance.
Business optimism in Qatar soars to its highest for nearly three years
