  2. 2. A Fully Functioning Bond/Sukuk Market is a Prerequisite for Private Sector Growth in KSA and the Region • Benefits for the countries Bond markets require greater disclosure and higher levels of corporate governance Bond markets allocate resources better by favoring sustainable investment projects Attract interest from regional and international investors beyond the debt issues, leading to direct investments by foreign companies stimulating private sector growth
  3. 3. A Fully Functioning Bond/Sukuk Market is a Prerequisite for Private Sector Growth • Benefits for Companies  Facilitates growth by lowering cost of capital  Permits longer tenors to match investments  Increase ROI without dilution  Reduces over reliance on funding by local banks, thereby protecting corporates and banks from concentration risks  Reduces systemic liquidity risk by reducing mismatch between long term assets and short term funding  For banks, the availability of highly rated and highly liquid bonds denominated in local currency aids in Basel III compliance
  4. 4. A Fully Functioning Bond/Sukuk Market is a Prerequisite for Private Sector Growth • Benefits for Local Investors Provides a new asset class – an alternative to equities and real estate Bonds are lower risk than equities and are typically more liquid than real estate
