Saudi Arabia's Riyad Bank has sold via private placement 3 billion riyals in Tier 2 sukuk.
The 10-year sukuk is callable at year five, the bank said in a bourse filing on Tuesday (Feb 9).
It was priced at 6-month SAIBOR + 150 bps.
Riyad Capital was the sole arranger and dealer.
Sukuk issuances are forecasted to pick up further momentum this year after around $172 billion sold last year. The Gulf Cooperation Council countries, that include Saudi Arabia, are expected to remain active in the sukuk markets.
