K&A advises on the establishment of Saudi Real Estate Refinance Company’s domestic sukuk programme


Khoshaim & Associates (K&A) together with its cooperation firm Allen & Overy (A&O), have advised HSBC Saudi Arabia as sole arranger on the establishment of a SAR 11 billion domestic sukuk issuance program for Saudi Real Estate Refinance Company (SRC).

The team advising HSBC Saudi Arabia on the establishment of the programme was led by K&A’s managing partner Zeyad Khoshaim, supported by associate Ghadah AlOtaibi and A&O capital markets partner Bilal Ahmad, supported by associate Nick Halewood.

Zeyad Khoshaim, commented, “This was a strategically important transaction for SRC – the establishment of its first capital markets financing platform; the programme gives SRC an efficient platform to raise Saudi Riyal denominated funding.”

This transaction comes with K&A being awarded “The Real Estate Deal of The Year” and “Saudi Arabia Deal of The Year” by the Islamic Finance News awards based on this deal.

We are very proud of the Capital Markets team for working tirelessly on this transaction and are honored to have HSBC Saudi Arabia choose K&A as legal counsel.
