Dr Arpad Borock | Fieldfisher
Skip to main content

I hold a masters degree in Finance and Accounting and also graduated as a lawyer.

I started my career on equity markets and moved to Asset Liability Management and Treasury 20 years ago. I have assumed various Front Office and Market Risk management responsibilities in different countries.
Before joining Qatar National Bank in late 2016 I worked for BNP Paribas for 12 years in Paris, Egypt, Hungary and Ukraine where I was responsible for rolling out group standards for ALM Treasury and building up Market and Liquidity Risk management framework. In these countries I gained experience to adopt developed market best practices to emerging markets and also learned to manage extreme crisis situations - Arabic Spring in Cairo and the Ukrainian Revolution in Kiev - during my secondment.
I joined QNB as Group Head of Market Risk to manage fundamental prudential risks of the bank especially liquidity, interest rate, currency, and other market risks and to bring insightful judgment in the interpretation of risk information and its impact on the business model of the bank. My efforts to improve the risk culture was recognised by the Asian Banker magazine when QNB won the ‘Best Market Risk achievement in MENA region’ in 2019.
QNB started its LIBOR transition program in 2019 and I have been overseeing this strategic initiative for the entire group since then. I provide support to project management and to all working groups to deliver required changes in systems, procedures, products, pricing, contracts and communication.
