Bonds, Loans & Sukuk Middle East Awards

Since 2015 the Bonds, Loans & Sukuk Middle East Awards has been recognising the most innovative and ground-breaking deals from Sovereign, Corporate and Financial Institution issuers and borrowers in the Middle East. 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 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.

This year we are delighted to announce that for the first time we will be recognising the outstanding achievements of Investment Bank’s Deal Teams, Funding Teams, Investment Managers, and Legal Advisers.
