Since QIA was founded in 2005, the scale and scope of our activities has grown enormously.
Today, QIA is a dynamic organization of over 400 employees of more than 40 nationalities.
We have recruited a world-class array of international talent from leading asset managers, other sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and investment banks.
We are also making great progress in developing a new generation of highly-qualified Qatari colleagues, who are increasingly taking leadership positions across the organization.
The employees of QIA are a talented, diverse group of individuals who care deeply about achieving success—for themselves, for QIA, and for the people of Qatar. We combine a fast-paced, dynamic environment with a spirit of teamwork and a strong sense of integrity.
Having a wealth of international skills and perspectives is critical to our success as a global investor. We recruit highly experienced and specialized talent from all over the world, selecting individuals based on their track record, their relevant expertise, and their experience in demanding financial markets. Following an interview and selection process, these individuals and their families are supported in relocating to Qatar.
We are able to attract world class talent because our workplace offers considerable personal autonomy, combined with exposure to a sophisticated investment strategy and a wide range of sizable and complex transactions. Additional benefits of working at QIA include the ability to play a formative influence in a young and rapidly evolving organization and the opportunity for personal development through learning to operate in a different culture.
QIA is committed to developing Qatari talent. We seek to promote the increased participation of Qatari nationals in the workplace, and to cultivate local talent for the long term benefit of Qatar. We recruit high achieving Qataris from local and international universities and offer them fully funded and customized development plans.
Our leading edge development programs provide Qatari employees with the opportunity to make a difference to QIA, to the future of Qatar, and to themselves throughout their career.
We are growing our number of Qatari employees through:
Our Graduate Program is designed to give new graduates a unique and market leading financial education, with world class learning opportunities. This provides them with a thorough grounding to build their successful international careers.

They typically consist of two to five weeks of on the job training, designed to give participants valuable practical experience in a professional environment.
We place strong emphasis on the completion of professional qualifications through internationally recognised accreditations. CFA training is provided for those in investment roles, while CPA, ACCA or ACA training is provided to those in finance or accounting.
