As a Counsel at White & Case, Robert has been instrumental in building White & Case’s market leading position in Sukuk and capital markets.
He has worked on several dozens of public and private offerings of securities, many of which were among the largest and most high profile Sukuk and equity offerings in the Saudi/GCC market, including:
• issuance by Dar Al-Arkan Real Estate Development Company of several Sukuk issues (including pursuant to Rule 144A), representing the issuer;
• issuance by Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) of SAR10 billion of notes, representing the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia;
• public and priavate offerings by Saudi Hollandi Bank of several Lower Tier II Sukuk issues, representing the joint bookrunners and joint lead managers; and
• issuance by Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank PJSC of AED 2 billion Tier I Capital Sukuk to the Government of Abu Dhabi, representing the issuer.
More than a third of the issuance went to UK investors, with the remaining bonds sold in the Middle East and Asia.
Indonesian Finance Ministry said it expected to boost the proportion to 30% of total gross bond issuance, an increase from around 24% in 2015.
