Bonds triple as confidence in the UAE soars

Bonds triple as confidence in the UAE soarsThe United Arab Emirates seem to have benefitted from international turmoil in neighboring regions, and are touting their reputation as a so-called “Switzerland of the Middle East” in order to increase investments and investor confidence.  While bond ratings have decreased in neighboring countries such as Bahrain, Oman, and Saudi Arabia due to violence and political instability, the UAE has sold more than 3 times as many bonds as last year, raising $7.35 billion compared to $2.1 billion last year.

Investor confidence in the Emirates has been boosted by a stable economy and lack of political strife.  Demand for oil has increased as a result as well.  State owned corporations such as Dubai World are also restructuring debt in an effort to increase the country’s economic stability, along with raising capital through bond sales. These moves should inspire optimism and confidence in UAE bonds and investments, and increase foreign investments.
