Investments in Qatar National Bank

The request was successful.

Dear East Dunbartonshire Council,

I am seeking any information on local authority funds that have been stored with Qatar National Bank in the past 5 years, either as part of Treasury management operations, or for any other reason. Please provide the following:-

A breakdown of local authority funds that have been stored with Qatar National Bank (QNB) since 1 January 2017.
The quantum of the funds invested with QNB and the interest rate earned.
The latest list of approved countries for local authority funds to be invested in.

Please note that I have also made a request to some local authorities regarding money invested by council pension funds.

This is a separate request about a different type of investment, not a duplicated request.

I look forward to a response within the statutory time period.

Yours faithfully,

Rob Davies
