Manama, February 18, 2010
ABC Islamic Bank, along with Noor Islamic Bank and Standard Chartered Bank, have been mandated by Turkey’s Bank Asya to arrange a $75 million (and/or equivalent in Euros) syndicated dual currency Murabaha financing facility.
The facility which offers a profit margin of 225bps over the applicable benchmark has been structured as a Shari’a compliant dual-currency facility with a one-year tenor.
Proceeds will be used to fund Bank Asya’s Islamic trade finance activities.
