Qatar National Bank Looks to Southeast Asia: CEO Al Khalifa

Jan.19 -- Qatar National Bank is weighing opportunities in Southeast Asia as it looks to grow its global footprint. Foreign expansion is part of how the Middle East's largest lender will continue growing despite the small scale of Qatar’s local market, where QNB has roughly half the market share. In his first TV interview since taking the bank's top job, CEO Abdulla Al Khalifa discusses the bank's expansion plan, the Saudi market and the private sector. He speaks exclusively with Bloomberg's Simone Foxman on "Bloomberg Daybreak: Middle East."
