The Bank’s new name stems from a city in the northwestern part of Qatar, reflecting its deep Qatari roots and legacy; the brand identity represents resilience, growth, prosperity, and flexibility, as well as heritage. Featuring modern and dynamic elements inspired from the Arabic calligraphy, Lesha Bank’s logo also reflects its mission towards achieving excellence.

The new brand marks our ambitions in growth as well as our mission to reach new heights and achieve excellence in the way we take care of our investors, and in the way we combine Shari’a principles with the innovation of a global investment bank. The new identity also represents our deep roots and heritage in the Qatari market.”
