Meanwhile, Saudi exchange operator Tadawul said in a tweet on Wednesday that IHS Markit had included the Saudi government Sukuk market in its iBOXX global government bond index.
Saudi Capital Market Authority said in a statement that the inclusion will help the sukuk and debt instruments market indices to be followed by international investors.
