First HK sukuk listed in Dubai

Dubai saw on Thursday the listing of the very first Islamic bond in its stock market by China's Hong Kong Special administrative region. The listing of the one-billion U.S. dollar sukuk marks Dubai as one of the top three listing venues in the world for sukuk, with a currently listed nominal value of 24.05 billion dollars. The Nasdaq Dubai competes with the sukuk hubs in Kuala Lumpur and in London. A total of 14.15 billion dollars of sukuks have been listed on Dubai's exchanges so far in 2014, up 107 percent from 6.85 billion dollars in 2013.
