The financial and monetary sector is managed, organized, and supervised by three executive authorities, namely the Qatar Central Bank (QCB), the QFC Regulatory Authority (QFCRA) and the Qatar Financial Markets Authority (QFMA) all operating under laws issued by the State of Qatar.

FinTech holds considerable opportunities for economic diversification and it is representing one of the four pillars of Qatar’s National Vision 2030. The Qatar National FinTech Taskforce was formed in 2017, comprising Qatar Development Bank (QDB), QCB, Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) and various financial institutions operating in Qatar. The objective of the task force is to create a strong and sustainable FinTech ecosystem capable of competing regionally and internationally.
