Fitch Ratings has upgraded the bank's Long-term Issuer Default rating (IDR) to 'A-' from 'BBB+', its Support Rating to '1' from '2' and its Support Rating Floor to 'A-' from 'BBB+'. The Outlook for the Long-term IDR is Stable.

The rating reflects a view that the bank would receive financial support from the Qatari authorities, in case it is needed.
