June 10, 2021

The Ministry of Finance announced on Wednesday that it had successfully completed the issuance of sharia-compliant Islamic instruments — known as sukuk — worth $1.75 billion with a maturity period of up to nine years. The issuance was part of the government’s efforts to raise funds to finance the budget based on a strategy espousing fiscal discipline and public debt reduction.

The response from international investors, as well as asset management and investment institutions, was robust with the issuance garnering more than $11.5 billion in bid offers, representing a 6.5 fold oversubscription. Offers were received from geographically diverse investors from as far afield as the Gulf, Asian, European and American markets.
