Dubai nets $1.25bn in bond and sukuk sale

Dubai raises $1.25 billion from bond and sukuk markets in a single day as international investors snap up the latest debts sold by the emirate.

Dubai has successfully tapped markets with a sale of US$1.25 billion (Dh4.59bn) of bonds and sukuk that will result in the emirate paying a lower rate to borrow than the Italian government.
This week the emirate sold a $750 million sukuk with a 10-year maturity, with the first issue "extremely oversubscribed", according to arranging banks.
Dubai was also able to raise $500m through a sale of 30-year conventional bonds, after institutional investors asked for a longer dated issuance.
With the local economy recovering, Dubai raised funds at a lower interest rate than Italy, whose 10-year government debt yields 4.1785 per cent.
Dubai's 10-year Islamic bonds were priced with an annual coupon of just 3.875 per cent. When Dubai last tapped bond markets for 10-year funding, it paid a coupon of 5.591 per cent.
"This has now set the stage for other Dubai entities to raise longer-term financing," the Dubai Department of Finance said in a statement.
Last night, Emirates Airline was said to be preparing to follow the Dubai Government back to bond markets, Bloomberg News reported. The carrier was said to be planning a benchmark dollar bond sale, which would typically be worth around $500m.
"The rest of the world is starting to wake up to the cheapness of this particular market," said Mark Watts, the head of fixed income at National Bank of Abu Dhabi.
"The day of the public bond market in this region has actually come, and I think we'll see a lot more issuance."
Dubai's ability to attract 30-year funding - typically sought by pension funds and insurers that do not usually buy Arabian Gulf debt - could bode well for companies seeking to raise funds from debt markets, said Mr Watts.
The speed of the issuance took many investors by surprise, with the issue announced and closed within a single day's business, he added.
The cost of insuring Dubai's debts against default has also fallen sharply.
Dubai's credit default swaps have fallen from a peak of 952.3 basis points in early 2009 to an all-time low of 258.335 basis points earlier this year, meaning that it costs $25,833 to insure $1m of debt.
"The transaction is a resounding success and has set the tone for upcoming issuances from the region," said Salman Ansari, the regional head of debt capital markets for Standard Chartered.
"With a high-quality order book of approximately $15bn and the fact that the Government of Dubai was able to successfully print its first ever 30-year issue, this transaction is testimony of global investor confidence in the Dubai credit story and its long-term value proposition," he said.

Three ways to limit your social media use

Clinical psychologist, Dr Saliha Afridi at The Lighthouse Arabia suggests three easy things you can do every day to cut back on the time you spend online.

1. Put the social media app in a folder on the second or third screen of your phone so it has to remain a conscious decision to open, rather than something your fingers gravitate towards without consideration.

2. Schedule a time to use social media instead of consistently throughout the day. I recommend setting aside certain times of the day or week when you upload pictures or share information. 

3. Take a mental snapshot rather than a photo on your phone. Instead of sharing it with your social world, try to absorb the moment, connect with your feeling, experience the moment with all five of your senses. You will have a memory of that moment more vividly and for far longer than if you take a picture of it.

Three ways to limit your social media use

Clinical psychologist, Dr Saliha Afridi at The Lighthouse Arabia suggests three easy things you can do every day to cut back on the time you spend online.

1. Put the social media app in a folder on the second or third screen of your phone so it has to remain a conscious decision to open, rather than something your fingers gravitate towards without consideration.

2. Schedule a time to use social media instead of consistently throughout the day. I recommend setting aside certain times of the day or week when you upload pictures or share information. 

3. Take a mental snapshot rather than a photo on your phone. Instead of sharing it with your social world, try to absorb the moment, connect with your feeling, experience the moment with all five of your senses. You will have a memory of that moment more vividly and for far longer than if you take a picture of it.

Who is Mohammed Al Halbousi?

The new speaker of Iraq’s parliament Mohammed Al Halbousi is the youngest person ever to serve in the role.

The 37-year-old was born in Al Garmah in Anbar and studied civil engineering in Baghdad before going into business. His development company Al Hadeed undertook reconstruction contracts rebuilding parts of Fallujah’s infrastructure.

He entered parliament in 2014 and served as a member of the human rights and finance committees until 2017. In August last year he was appointed governor of Anbar, a role in which he has struggled to secure funding to provide services in the war-damaged province and to secure the withdrawal of Shia militias. He relinquished the post when he was sworn in as a member of parliament on September 3.

He is a member of the Al Hal Sunni-based political party and the Sunni-led Coalition of Iraqi Forces, which is Iraq’s largest Sunni alliance with 37 seats from the May 12 election.

He maintains good relations with former Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki’s State of Law Coaliton, Hadi Al Amiri’s Badr Organisation and Iranian officials.
