Dubai's ICD in talks over first Islamic bond - sources

The Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) is in talks with banks to launch its first Islamic bond, in order to diversify its funding sources. The deal will reportedly be completed this year. A source at ICD said the fund had no plans for a sukuk, but is turning to the Islamic bond market because of potential legislation capping lending by local banks to government related entities. Separately, ICD is also talking to bankers over a US$2bn loan due to mature in August, with refinancing the likely option.
