Executive summary

The report clarifies the rationale for developing a local debt market and presents analysis of the factors that are likely to provide the stimulus for the development and expansion of Dubai’s conventional and Islamic debt markets. 

A core component of the report is the benchmarking of Dubai with other regional and international financial hubs that have either proven successful in attracting investment, or are at the stage of developing their debt capital markets and directly competing with Dubai. In light of this, potential gaps that could impact Dubai’s competitiveness are identified and a set of policy recommendations are presented.
