The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) has joined the World Alliance of International Financial Centres (WAIFC), a non-profit organisation established to facilitate strategic cooperation among financial centres, exchange of best practices and to initiate dialogues with public authorities.
As an alliance, the WAIFC members will facilitate cross fertilisation among international financial centres, promote the importance of financial centres to local and international economies and focus on projects that advance sustainable economic development.
As part of WAIFC, the QFC will share its unique business model and expertise in maintaining a world-class legal, regulatory, tax and business infrastructure that stimulates the growth of local and foreign businesses. The QFC will also impart successful endeavours and initiatives in different financial sectors including Islamic Finance, Fintech, Asset Management, and Capital Markets.
