Sharjah has listed $200 million Sukuk on Nasdaq Dubai, bringing the total value of Sukuk listed in Dubai to $67.06 billion.
Nasdaq Dubai’s new Sukuk listings in 2020 have reached $2.9 billion and its Sukuk listings in 2019 totalled $14.15 billion, an annual record high for the exchange and 18 per cent more than $11.99 billion in 2018.
A total of 44 per cent of Nasdaq Dubai’s Sukuk listings by value are from UAE issuers, with 56 per cent from overseas issuers.
The exchange is strengthening its programme of outreach to existing and potential issuers in the Sukuk sector, in the Middle East and globally, to foster collaboration and synergies in the Shari’ah-compliant financing sector.
