BONDS, LOANS & SUKUK MIDDLE EAST AWARDS 2023

6TH JUNE | MADINAT JUMEIRAH CONFERENCE CENTRE, DUBAI

"Recognising the most innovative & ground-breaking deals from the Middle East"


Join the industry's most high-profile figures in celebrating!

Since 2014, the Bonds & Loans Awards has been recognising the most innovative and ground-breaking deals from Sovereign, Corporate and Financial Institution issuers and borrowers.

The exhaustive selection process involves close examination of deal size, tenor, structure, and distribution; analysis and background of the borrower and their accessibility to financing; with extra credit for those deals demonstrating high quality execution, accessing new pools of liquidity, innovative structuring, and opening-up new markets.

Bringing together the industry’s most high-profile figures, the Bonds, Loans & Sukuk Middle East AWARDS ceremony is an opportunity to raise the profile of the financial markets with the international investment community, and to inspire future issuance by Middle Eastern companies.
