July 13, 2012 - PRLog -- As reported on khaleejtimes, Arabian Gulf property developers are raising the most since 2009 from bond sales as Dubai’s debt repayment agreements and record-low regional yields help restore investor confidence.

Majid Al Futtaim Holding, a UAE-based shopping-mall developer and operator, and Kuwait’s Al Argan International Real Estate were among companies that issued about $995 million in the first six months, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The sales compare with $500 million in 2011 and $2.45 billion in the first half of 2009, the data show. Emaar Properties sold $500 million of seven-year Islamic bonds, one person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

Gulf bonds have benefited from confidence Dubai will refinance financial obligations of its related entities and as investors seek safer-haven assets amid Europe’s financial crisis. Average yields on bonds from the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council have dropped 99 basis points this year to a record 4.1 per cent on Wednesday, the HSBC/Nasdaq Dubai GCC Conventional US Dollar Bond Index show.
