The three sukuk tranches, listed on June 9, 2021, comprise a $1.25bn sukuk at 1.5 per cent yield and a five-year maturity; a $1bn sukuk at 2.55 per cent yield and a 10-year maturity and a $750m green sukuk at 3.55 per cent yield and with a maturity period of 30 years.

The latest issuances attracted demand from central banks, sovereign wealth funds and insurers, especially in South East Asia and the Middle East, with a combined order book exceeding $10.3bn, noted a statement by Nasdaq Dubai.

The total value of all sukuk listed by the Government of Indonesia on Nasdaq Dubai now stands at $19.75bn.

“We are pleased to welcome the new listings from the Government of Indonesia, the largest sovereign sukuk issuer on Nasdaq Dubai.

Dubai is one of the largest centres for sukuk listings globally, with a total listed value of $76bn.
