Global sukuk issuance falls slightly to $30.6b

Full-year volumes could still be highly influenced by the funding needs and strategies of large individual borrowers which may come to the market before year-end, as well as by geopolitical developments that could have a positive or negative effect on investor appetite, the agency said in a research note.—Arabian Business
