GBSA’s working groups gather market leaders around key issues in Islamic Finance, Fintech, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing, Public Debt Issuance, Market Regulation and Investor Relations. GBSA sets market practices, facilitates communication with the global investment community and raises awareness of debt capital markets among companies.
We provide platforms for targeted discussions and host prominent speakers, thereby ensuring that members receive opportunities to demonstrate leadership and make helpful connections. GBSA coordinates closely with global and regional official institutions such as International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Islamic Development Bank and Arab Monetary Fund, among others.
The expansion of the Middle East debt capital market and its integration into the global emerging market universe reflects GBSA’s role, which has grown in parallel.
