Sukuk investors increase holdings in NASDAQ Dubai custody by 36%
The increase in the holdings, which are maintained in the exchange's Central Securities Depository (CSD), reflects the wide range and competitive pricing of the CSD's services to participants. As well as custody, these include settlement of over the counter cross-border transfers and processing of corporate actions, such as interest and profit payments and redemption.
NASDAQ Dubai is the only exchange in the Middle East that has direct access to the International Central Securities Depositaries (ICSDs) Euroclear and Clearstream. These links provide an easy transaction process between the ICSDs and the NASDAQ Dubai CSD for international and regional investors.
